Fuel mileage

Recommended Posts

I have a 2014 106 sportchassis 9l 350 hp when I tow my sportchassis get 6 to 7 mpg.

when not towing I received about 12mpg. So my question is this to what other are getting on their truck.

its a new truck with 3,500 miles 

thanks ed

 On a “new” truck as the miles increase the engine and drivetrain will “break in” and you will see an increase of your mpg when towing.
