I really don't think at this moment in life anyone really cares what our mpg is. Diesel here in Alabama is 1.92 per gallon for the time being. I can slow my truck down to 65 and go from 11mpg towing to 13mpg, but who really cares when fuel is so cheap.


Lets face it, we spend 60k on a truck, 37k on a Puma Unleashed 5er, 30K in a RZR to go in Puma, if we can't afford fuel, we should re-evaluate what we are doing here.


My position in life could very well change Monday morning, but for now I am going to enjoy it while I can. I'm 45 years old, had a heart attack and double bypass in 2015 and that will really change the way you look at things.


Long story short-here is my bad advice for 2016-work on your bucket list BEFORE it's too late!

agreed....It is more of a curiosity. I am surprised by the numbers for the guys with gas engines. I never did better than 10 (generally >9) towing my old 7500# TT with a K2500 Suburban (6.0 gas)

Range is more of a concern for me when towing. I have been kicking around the idea of installing a transfer tank to increase my range.


Boat MPG-- you don't even want to consider calculating it. From what I have seen in boating magazines 2 mpg is an "economy vehicle" when it comes to boats. I just know when mine needs fuel it either goes to the trailer or the marina for more!
