2008 F-450 6.4L twin turbo, auto w/4.88 gears, H&S tuned 580hp/1175tq at the tires, 6" lift with 36" tires. All figs are hand calculated over various trips: 19.5+ mpg @ 58mph empty, 13mpg @ 70mph empty.
2008 Cyclone 4012 toy hauler usually weighing in over 18,000 lbs, 8.5 mpg towing @ 55mph, and 9.5 towing @ 63mph go figure! Hills are NOT an issue! And with 158 gallons of diesel on board neither is fuel until we stop! :(

Custom 2008 F-450 tuned to 580hp/1175tq at the tires.

5ver TH mileage

40' Keystone Fuzion 383 being pulled by an 07 Silv classic HD2500 CC Dura 4wd. Bullydog GT (set on Tow/Econ), 4" cat-back exaust, cold air intake, extra 45 gal fuel tank in bed. Fully loaded with with my Yamaha Royal Star dresser and small motorcycle cargo trailer, full tanks of diesel and gas in the fuel station (15gal) and the bike (6 gal), no water. GVWR was 24,200 as of yesterday on cert. scale. I got 12 mpg steady from Yuma to Bullhead City running 58 mph avg. I'm a bit over on my GVWR, but it's all fuel, which accounts for about 600 lbs. Nothing I can do about that. The ol' lady won't let me throw out any of her stuff....and of course I'm NOT leaving my bike, so I'll live with the extra weight. LMAO

Maybe 10 mpg or slightly over and down to 8 or 9 in the hills. Also depends on how fast you drive. I am assuming 65 mph as a tops.

'07 HD2500 4WD Dura 6.6 LBZ - AFS cold air intake - Bullydog GT programmer (set on "tow/econ") - 4" cat back exaust - exaust manifold changed out on driver side to get rid of the stock "crimp" - towing a 40' Fuzion 383 FWTH fully loaded (no water) is 14.4k. At 60mph CC on relatively level highway I get 13 on a good day, 10 on a reg basis. It'll tow mucho faster, but mileage goes in the s--tter over 65 mph. Towed this rig all over the western and mid-wester US. Same MPG just about everwhere on level ground with no head-wind.

I have gotten as much as 12 mpg and as little as 7.5 against a very strong head wind. Most of the time I get 10.5 I have a F350 dually 6.7 diesel pulling a Voltage 3950.
