I'm curious, too. But the owner's manual says that the engine won't achieve full efficiency until it's broken in by towing/hauling heavy loads, so I'm not sure that what we get on this trip will be representative of what we'll get after it's broken in.

Hey I'm in Virginia but frequent in the Baltimore area as my family is still up there. Do you all get together , do any camping or outdoor trips?? Cooler season is almost here and looking to get some people together for a good weekend.

It basically towed very well, with some issues. The biggest is that the receiver is so high that we need a new drop bar for our hitch - the trailer was still up in the front, even with the "reduced ride height mode" set. I have no idea why the truck manufacturers think we need trucks that are two feet off the ground - it just makes loading things into the bed that much more work, and setting up to tow is that much more annoying.

I think once we get that resolved it'll be fine. It's a bit more "jiggly" than the F-250 with its leaf suspension was, but some of that is likely the incorrect hitch settings, and it's really subtle anyway.

We got around 12.6 MPG for the towing parts of our trip.
