I've been thinking about possible getting a 4500 dump for mowing and landscaping but i still need ok mpg for my mowing route.

I guess it depends on what "ok" mpg is to you...I have run a 4500 with my last job and other trucks like it f550 f650 and so on..these are big trucks that weigh a lot and if you tow even less mpg...we got anywhere from 6 towing a 16ft trailer loaded with equipment to 9 on a good day not towing..my personal four door 4x4 2004 ram diesel gets 19 empty 21 on a very good day and keeping my foot out of it if i tow ..anywhere from 15 to 11.5 depends on what i am towing..my worst mpg yet is with my enclosed 36ft toy hauler 11.5 cant really complain about that..hope this helps..
