We brought a 2020 Ram 1500, 5.7l V8, 3.92 rear axle ratio and the trailer tow package. We now have ~1000 miles towing our 2021 Tab400 BDL with it. I am a bit surprised by the mileage - we are getting on average 10-10.5 MPG towing. Without the trailer, combined mileage is ~16 MPG and 19-20 open road MPG. We do live at altitude - 5K' +.
Should I consider the towing mileage typical for a V8 gas engine?
I keep wondering if I should have purchased the eco-diesel Ram.
