To the OP. Part of your gas mileage problem is a 1ton dually with only a 5.7 in it. To move the truck around empty the motor is working, not imagine adding 3-4k in the bed and say a 6k trailer behind it. Now that little motor is pissed and working it's @ss off. If the truck was a big block (7.4/454) it may get the same mileage or possibly even a little bit better. The bigger motor won't be working nearly as hard to move the same load. Even if it gets the same mileage you should still be money ahead since it's not working as hard and there for should live a long life with fewer break downs.
Yeah I know....
