I just don't do enough easy driving to see it. This is my first tank without any towing since Feb and most of those towing miles are a 30' barn door.. I mean travel trailer. So I have to enjoy it while it lasts.

I've been enjoying the 20-24 MPG back and forth to work. Just depends on if that day I decide to hype-mile and drag my butt to work or do I just set the cruise for 65 MPH and haul tail to work. Still with $2.839 price for diesel and $3.129 for gas... Yeah I'm enjoying it.

With that cute little trailer? That is a bit lower than I would have guessed.

 

I really hate to scale my trailer right now. I rather heavy. Not to mention I didn't shut down the engine much through the day and kept the A/C running between stops. But during unloading I did shut down the truck. I'm pretty sure I'm close to the weight of my RV weight.

I do.

That explains some of the miles per tank you get.

I only do once or twice a year for hunting or long backroad trips. I account for the fuel between the click and neck full on the next tank.

My truck quite often gets fueled and parked for a week or more and a tank full to the neck has nowhere to expand.

I have a tiny bit of seepage on the top of the tank...  I don't fill up into the neck unless I'm on a trip... 

 

8mpg is pretty piss poor.  My 79 C30, 454, towing cam, Edlebrock intake, AFB, headers, huge truck mufflers, 3.73 axle, 16.5 tires...  got 11 mpg.  I thought 11 was bad.  Twin fireball 20g saddle tanks...  LOL!  Towing or empty, did not matter.  The AC mattered (when it had AC)..  subtract 1 mpg.

My truck almost never sits for more than a day.

i don't top off that far. only let it click off 3 times. always get fuel from sams club unless traveling.

this trip i went from Flagpole az, to payson, to Phoenix, then back home i'm happy with the results. i dropped to 65 mph, and tried to keep boost under 10. edge set 4.post-1725-0-69691200-1438529958_thumb.jp

I am still on the same tank of diesel and will drive the truck again tomorrow. I'll peek and see where I am at. 

 

IIRC the 2500 QCSB has a 34 gal tank vs the QCLB 35 gal tank? 

 

With you topping off I would guess you have a gallon or two more than I do with the bigger tank and only filling to the click.

The 1st "mod" I ever did to my truck was the "fuel tank vent mod".   When I first got my '04.5, it would take 27-28 gallons of diesel to "fill her up".  

 

After the "fuel tank vent mod";  when I fill up now, MightyWhitey takes 30-32 gallons.  I think I have the "little" tank.
