2011 6.7 F350 SRW 4x4. Delete with GDP tunes using an EZ Lynk. Towing 19' JH around 65-70 MPH. I usually average between 11.5-13.5 towing from Rosenberg to Indian Lake/Los Fresnos down in the RGV.

I pull a 22 Outrage with a 2009 Ram 3500 6.7 Cummins. Full delete and a straight pipe with factory muffler. Run between 70 and 75. Depending on wind I get between 14 and 15 mpg.

What's a heavy load? 7.7 would be nice. I just towed my 11K lb fifth wheel from Dallas to Victoria down Hwy 77. With my 6.2L gasser averaged 6.2 MPG trying to hold 65. Way more hills than I thought. Don't know that I missed a gas station.

We tried to talk you into that diesel, lol. That's a lot of weight for a gasser.

After pulling it one time, you'll forget about those extra $$$'s. I can see up til about 8k lbs, but after that the diesel proves it's worth.

Yep lots of toque at hi way speed, pulled my 26 glacier bay with a 6.0 , 3:73
Got 6-7 mpg in a heavy wind, switching to diesel I never understood the hi way torque till reading this
I still wouldn’t switch back to diesel unless I did more 300+ miles one way
