First tow with 07 F350 6.0, not what I expected
So we took our first trip towing our toy hauler from Reno To Pismo Beach.. this is also the first trip towing with the 07 F350 Crew SRW 6.0. The TH was probably loaded around 9500 lbs with water, toys, etc on the way there and less the water on the way back (1000 lbs). It just didn't seem to pull the trailer like I thought it would. Leaving Pismo on the 101 at the big uphill I was down to 45mph, through the Sierra's coming home dropped to 48 to 50 mph.
Just wondering if this seem right? MPG going to Pismo was about 8.5 to 9. On the flats of I-5 north it was to 11mpg. I can only compare this to our old 06 Dodge 5.9 pulling a larger trailer and it was night and day... so it just makes me think there might be something wrong with my truck. Seems to run fine when not towing. Truck is all stock BTW. Thanks
