I'm new in 5th wheel but have towed a 33 travel trailer for over 12k miles last year, behind a gas GMC Sierra..

Planning is the key. I use Google maps and street view to plan out my route, and I always plan a stop at 1/2 a tank, just in case, the station I thought was "OK" turned out to be a "no go".

Friends had an F250 with the V10, pulled his 5er great, but couldn't get past a gas station.

My Ford V10 got 10.5 mpg pulling the trailer, pretty much the same as any gas truck.

Here is something interesting from the KZ forum. Fuel program that gives =way= better discounts than does the GS or other in-house fuel cards. Note that Emperor Marcus is going after Pilot/Flying J as he claims they have an exclusive contract with them for their measly 5 cent discount.

Only good for diesel Lyle, at some truck stops not all. The app shows which. Took on 50 gallons today and saved $34.17.


Hadn't realized that, Edd.
