There lots of variables like wind and speed and terrain. Im going to give you perfect conditions numbers, driving 74 mph all hwy I avg around 19 mpg and the same trip pulling a 10' trailer with my rhino I get 14.6. All numbers are hand calculated. 331 rear axel.

Why can't you take the avg and x it by 26 it will get you close.

It never misses a beat the engine has plenty of power the one thing you will notices it will have more bumper sag than your truck. I do pull a 9k bumper pull travel trailer and it makes her squat might have to add airbags.

Yep the 250 has only one leaf spring where the 350 has two. I believe its something they change on the new trucks.
