    Well, I get about 7.5 to 8 pulling my trailer, it's a 8 by 16 enclosed. I also only get 14 if I'm lucky not pulling it. :rolleyes:

    I get about 13 pulling a 8 x 16 enclosed trailer. I'm driving a F150 crew with a 5.4l V8 and automatic.

    Well, no B.S. here, I have an F150 with the 5.4ltr Crewcab 4wd. I sure don't get 13 pulling any trailer. Last time I checked, pulling nothing I got 13.9, once I got 14.2. :clapping:
