RE: Diesel vs gas......................

I RARELY go over 65 MPH... (especially pulling a 8K RV) at 75 you are going to fast pulling a SOB.. (some other brand).. its an airstream thing.. SLOW down and the MPG will go back to 13 or so.. not a big need to go so fast the place will be there or leave earlier. :) peace out brother.. happy memorial day.. I feather the pedal the best i can @75mph

RE: Diesel vs gas......................

guess a lot depends on your foot, especially the thin pedal where as if you try to be the first guy up the hill, the big badass diesel) vs just getting in the power zone and let it ride that can affect the MPG.. I have a '03 7.3 with 60 HP tow tune on east coast average 13 MPG pulling a 30 ft airstream. only big hills around here are on Hwy 421 near boone, black mtn on I-40, and fancy gap up I-77. I can pull them in 3rd, (4 speed with OD) keeping up with 55 mph traffice.. running 2K rpm more or less. try less speed and lower gear. :) I bought my first 2018 duramax, always pulled our 13k 5er with a 6.0 gasser, no real issues other then it was always at about 3k rpm now with the duramax its always around 1800-2000rpm. I am Very dissapointed in the mpg tho, the gasser would always get 7mpg and the duramax only gets 9 mpg, I was expecting far more then a 2 mpg gain for the additional $10k I spent

RE: Diesel vs gas......................

$4.09 for gas... WOW.. here in eastern NC, Raleigh area, gas is 2.59 diesel 2.95.. glad diesel is a bit cheaper there.. :) What station and where so others in your area might benefit as well? City of Pasadena, the Mobil at the corner of Foothill and Sierra Madre just off the 210 freeway is one, but there are too many to list in LA County. $4.09 currently which is less than all gas.
