new to this forum, so go easy on me. i recently bought a 2000 7.3 powerstroke crew cab dually with 90k, got a great deal and was fairly happy with its mpg, roughly 14-16 everyday use no extra weight. recently took the fam on a camping trip pulling my 31ft 11000lbs bumper pull. my mpg dropped to 7-8 mpg what can i do to get better millage. it also seemed to be sluggish. could only make 35 mph pulling cabbage hill in the Oregon Blue mnts off I 84. big hill yes, but buddy with 2000 cummins could do it with ease no speed drop

With the correct upgrades you can get much better towing and empty MPG's and pull your trailed almost as fast as you want up hills..

Example we just modded a customers f350 truck that pulls a 13k 5th wheel. he went from 8.5 to 12 mpg pulling and from 45mph up hills previously taken to 65+ mph with plenty left over. It can be done just takes correctly matched parts and $$$

PM me if I can help.
