    I was wondering what the gas milage would be for a 1998-2000 Chevrolet 2500 2-wheel drive with a 350 pulling a 7 by 16ft utility trailer with a three thousand pound load.


    Thanks, Adam

    Hey LLandscaping,

    I'm in Hanceville...
    I have a 2003 Chevy 3/4 ton with a 8100 vortex...Allison Auto and I get about 8.5 to 9.5 depending on what I'm pulling. I would think you would do about 12 with a 350 pulling what you said....

    If your ever up in Hanceville, Look me up.....Lunch is on me.

    Is your Chevy 3/4 2-wheel drive? Thanks for the offer for lunch, I might take you up on that.

    Thanks for all your info,

    I have a 2002 3/4HD 4 wheel drive with the 6.0 and 4:10 rear. I get about 12 pulling the mower on the 7 - 16 trailer. About 10 when I pull the tractor.
