Sudden and random MPG and power drop in 2006 Dodge 2500

Asked by Sep 20, 2017 at 05:16 PM about the 2006 Dodge Ram 2500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While pulling a 12ft work trailer from Alabama to
North Carolina I noticed a tremendous decrease in
both performance and MPG was steadily dropping
(per overhead MPG monitor).  This went on for
about 10 mins.  I pulled over to fuel up and look
undee the hood for anything out of the ordinary
(leaks etc.) Nothing. When I got back on the
interstate everything seemed to go right back to
normal for the rest of the trip and still seems
alright. This is a work truck that is regularly
maintained with 323000 miles.  Wondering what
would cause this issue.
