honestly couldn't tell ya what kind of mileage i get towing or empty with my f350 i haven't reset my trip odometer in over 10,000 miles....i could tell ya 70 dollars only lasts two days, but that was before i put a chip in my truck, it seems to have gotten better with the added 80hp because i no longer have to use 3/4 throttle to just drive around, now i'm at 1/4 throttle maybe 1/2 throttle and im up to 50mph very quickly even with a trailer.
