Asked by Nov 25, 2016 at 03:42 PM about the 2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Question type: General

I have a 2008 chevy 2500 HD 6.0 crewcab 2wd..3;73 rea rend, I tow  a 10,000lb tongue pull TT right now and get about 8.5 to 9 mpg at 62 miles per hour. looking  at a 5th wheel that weighs 13,000lbs when I load it out , how much is that going to affect my mpg?  thanks for any help

46,405

Clearly you will get poorer mileage. There is the additional weight and the 5th wheel has more frontal area too which means more wind drag.
