My 2016 gets about 12-12.5 dragging my 11K travel trailer at 70 on a long trip. like all engines, the more aggressive you drive, the less fuel mileage you will get. My wife always freaks out when I pass someone going 70 and run it up to 85+ to get around them quickly/safely! LOL!

Thanks for the info - I am looking forward to the higher crusing speed & better diesel milage that extra gear will give me.

Bone-stock except for air shocks in rear (to compensate for removing one rear spring from the spring-pack to give a decent ride on those occasions when not towing heavy loads ! ). Added small winch in pick-up bed to help load our jet ski up its ramp. Normal use is towing approx. 11,000 lb. trailers ( our Bayliner on its 3 axle, or my '38 Packard V-12 in its "box" trailer. Air box modified to accept a cabin air filter the system was obviously originally designed for!

I hope you don't have ST tires on your trailer, they are only rated to 65 MPH, either way if they are Chinese, your life is in their tires...
