I just got barely over ten in my '17 Powerstoke towing my 23' Haynie cat. Towing sucks fuel and there's not a whole lot to do about it other than driving technique - Highway speeds at 70 and above are going to use a lot of fuel. I'm of the opinion that going to a diesel truck to save 3-4 MPG is a poor solution and you aren't going to bolt on an aftermarket part that's going to return anything significant.

For what its worth, I'm only seeing about 11-12mpg while towing with my '19 3.5 ecoboost. 20ft bluewave, so not a heavy boat at all. Pulls it like a champ, but around 11mpg at 65mph. Anything over and it drops accordingly, I don't push it past 70 anyway.

never been a big diesel fan, but I'm not in the cattle or hot shot business either. there is no doubt, a diesel will tow circles around gas. so if you tow heavy loads daily, it only makes since to have a diesel. i tow at most 2 or 3 times a week, 15 to 30 miles one way, and a few trips south each year. i can get away with gas, my 2013 just turned 100k miles. So I think I'm in the market for a 2019 GMC, 6.2l ,white exterior. but sure is nice not having a payment.

RTXfisher is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
Got a 2015 ram half ton with hemi and 3.21 rear end. Pulling an 18 foot bluewave. Maybe weighs 2000 pounds loaded to the brim. I see 12-14mpg running 70-80 mph. Completely stock. Get 20-22 unloaded.
I do have a bed-cover which could be helping some.
The mileage surprises me.

My 5.3 is about the same pulling my 22’, 7000 lb offshore cat at 70 mph.

I don’t see the issue. Gas is $2.50/gal, and I’m sure you pass a few stations at least every 25 miles.

Three things men lie about most:
- size of their Johnson
- golf scores
- gas mileage

Have a live tune performed on it, will wake the truck up and improve MPG. There are plenty of options for good tuners all over SE Texas. Price ranging from $300+
It’s not gonna make it a diesel by any means but will pay for itself over time in improved MPG if you don’t play with the pedal on the right too much.
