What kind of gas mileage are you guys getting pulling mowers with the 6.0 vortec? Thanks
I'd expect 12, at best out of mine if I drove like a grandma on a sunday drive..
Do a search on this...... more thread's on it then you can count .
yea, i'd say 9-11 towing.
11mpg towing 5K, 9mpg towing 8-9K. Cargo trailer adds more weight, and drag, so don't expect much better than 9-10mpg city/highway.
Man i really cant believe i want one of these engines... ha!
thanks guys...pretty much it sounds like if you have a 3/4 ton or 1 ton your just not gonna get good mpg...sucks but thats reality!
Uh, well yeah!
Its like getting 44s then complaining about road noise..
Its the nature of the beast!
I was down to 7.5 pulling my 16 foot lawn trailer empty down the interstate at 75. Was less then impressed to say the least. Get 11.5 or so in town without trailer. Definitely not a truck to buy for fuel economy.
