Question What fuel consumption do you get?

As a matter of interest, what are you all towing, with what truck - and what is your fuel consumption?

We tow a Wildwood T25KS with an F150 and get 25 per 100kms. (Seems pretty dreadful to me.....) What about you?

(Ooops - just edited to say this is Canadian consumption.... will have to work out what that is for American fuel economy )

Is that liters/100 kms? If it is that's 8.5 mpg. That's about what I'm getting with an 07 Ford Expedition (3.73 gears) and a Prime Time Tracer 3000BHS.

That makes it 9.4 mpg

My mpg will change depending on how fast I'm traveling, terrain and sometimes what kind of gas I get.

It feels that way sometimes. Seems like it takes longer to fill up than it does to run it dry.

We recently returned from over 2000 miles towing through Colorado and New Mexico, over many high mountain passes. Our towing average was 11.8 mpg.
