9mpg towing...normal I think?
Hey there, typically I don't fret too much over fuel economy as I figure there's not much I am going to do about it...still gotta drive. However I am slightly concerened for an upcoming trip. I intend to head out from Colorado up to the tetons, then head over to niagara falls, then to upstate NY, to the keys, then back home.
I tow skidsteers and pallets fairly often but I noticed towing my camper (2004 arctic fox 30u, bumper pull) my mileage is a lot worse, bout 9 going 75.
So my question is, is this typical, I am spartan tuned, and straight piped, thats all, oh and I am running 35'sx13 duratracs
Furthermore, I figure the best tune empty is the 275, towing I backed it down to the 210tp, is there a better option, the truck yanks the trailer just fine so I don't necessarily need the power more than I would like better economy.
And as much as I would like to just go slower I foresee I will want to go the posted limit as its a lot of miles
