20 city, 23 highway, I know that prob a little fudged but still
Yeah the whole hybrid truck thing is kinda weird I guess because it kinda defeats the purpose of what a truck is used for. But yeah I guess with that many miles on your current truck it doesn't make much sense to do much to it. I would probably just try to sell it and find a mid 2000s half or 3/4 ton gas truck if thats what you really want. That way you'll at least get the towing power. But you probably won't see that great of mileage anyways pulling the trailer. But what do I know.
