Trip

Well, the first part of Dec. I finally made a longer trip with my 6.7. From home in Ohio to the campground in Fl. pulling my Challenger 5th wheel. Now has 3300 miles on it and I am tickled to death with it. Hand calculated got 12.3 mpg.
Now one question for you folks. I'm showing less than half a tank for the def tank. Isn't that a little low for 3300 miles, only roughly 1300 towing? Going to have the dealer change the oil and check the truck over next week.

It's probably just under 1/2 tank...but towing does go through the DEF more than normal driving...I had under 1/2 tank at 4K miles with no towing...not sure how full the factory is filling them either...

yeah i agree they are not filling it from factory i have yet to tow and had to refill def already at 3,000+, no big deal buy the 2.5 gallon jugs and ford spout easy to use plus it doesn't allow to overfill. Which i am from new york and def will freeze.
