Diesel MPG

Im considering getting a ford f250 or f350 to pull a fully loaded 7x16 enclosed tandem axel trailer. Right now I have a 07 GMC sierra 1500 with the flex fuel engine and the gas mileage is killing me. Do yall think I will get that much better mpg with the diesel. If I had to guess i would say im proab getting between 7-10 mpg with the sierra. I would also like the heavier truck for the bigger payload.

no problem. ill answer your question while im at it. if you get a 7.3 deisel f250 you will get about 21mpg. so pulling a trailer would be around 18 or 19.
