Next year I have to haul a 25' camper half way to NY, about 1200 miles.  I'll be curious to see how I do then vs the empty return trip back.  I'll be followed by a 1994 GMC with a 350 pulling a truck bed trailer.  I'm sure I'll be stopping for gas a lot more than diesel.

I grew up during a 92 light K2500 and a 93 K1500 burb, both with TBI 350’s. It was rare to get more than 15mpg, even trying. Dad sold the 93 for a 97 K2500 burb with a 454. 11-13 empty, and 4-7 towing... but it had great power. After he put headers/exhaust on it the milage could touch 14 empty. Made it to 325K, lost the engine and trans in the same day and unrelated. Should have bought it to stuff the power train in a K5. 
 

 

 

Years ago we were moving my folks from MT back to WA. My brother had a 06 QC LB 2500 Hemi and a 7x16 enclosed trailer. He towed it empty to MT at 12 mpg or lower. I towed it back to WA full at 14 in my 05 QC LB 5.9. Kinda funny.
