When towing our 5er roughly 900 miles. Running empty but with a full load of fuel, roughly 1100 miles in the winter and roughly 1500 miles in the summer.

That is good - a full load of fuel would probably last some people all winter long.

Yes but hurts the wallet @ the pump. I added the tank because I run to northern Maine every weekend from mid December to mid April and I can buy fuel .45 to .50 a gallon cheaper there than here in Connecticut.

I would be careful with a 3/4 ton truck tho with the payload capacity and pin weight.

Just saying.

Just put yourself in the big rig drivers place when they fill up.
