I didnt expect it to be such a difference and tried to go for better fuel economy, which it had when not loaded. I pulled the same trailer with my company cummins, 6.7 with I want to say 3.73's and it was about 3mpg more economical. I pick up my 2011 f-350 tuesday, and friday I am pulling the trailer from waco tx to portland oregon. I will let you know how it goes.
Please do let us know how you come out on your mileage pulling the 5er.
