Fuel Mileage Towing Test

Pulled my little toy hauler just over 50 miles. I'm used to a Cummins. This little Eco showed me it's not a Cummins. Thing does pull but the lighter truck requires weight distribution bars. Towed without them first and it moved around. Timbren bumper stops worked on keeping the truck pretty level. Bars kept it both level and stable.

The skinny is only 11.5 mpg. I did run 65 and one time had to pass an 18 wheeler doing 60. The little Eco could, taking me to 80 mpg. Tow haul-mode worked best but the rpm's sure are higher than I like as it holds lower gears.

Just towed my 10 X 6 cargo trailer weighing in at just under 3000lb.
1400Km over the Rocky mountains from Vancouver to Quesnel BC.

Hwy speeds were between 100Km/h and 125Km/h

Total average 13 L/100Km.

At least you only have to take one bike out to sleep properly. I have to take all the bikes out, put down a foam mattress and sleep in the 10 x 6. I would love to have a toy hauler like yours.
