Average work week I usually see 12-13mpg with my 06 dodge, 17 foot enclosed trailer, 3 mowers, etc. all adding up to about 6000#. Was up around 17mpg last weekend pulling a very light boat and camping gear for 200 miles but quickly plunged to 12.5 after working 200 miles this week.

I have a 05' 3500 single wheel 5.9 and i pull a 20' gooseneck with lots of stuff on it and i get around 16-18 around town and I without trailer on highway doing 75mph i can get between 32-35mpg depending on wind direction. I havent had mine tuned yet, but I have a K&N air filter and I run Mystery Marvil Oil in my fuel.

Hahaahahaha, Im guessing you meant 22 - 25mpg bc. there is no 1 ton truck that gets 35 mpg, not even remotely close.
