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

1 Answer

66,005

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.
