Default My Eco vs Dmax towing the same load

Thought you guys might get a kick out of this. Here is a post about how my Eco stood up to the dmax.

This post was made by the Chevy driver.

Those are my real numbers, no fluff there. Noticed I said FLAT and BELOW 65. At 70 it drops off at least 2mpg, throw in some rolling hills and you are down to 17 or 18.

I get 21 mpg all the time at 120kph and a bit above, I couldn't believe my last tank of fuel.
Way way more than my last Dodge.

I also had a similar experience. Went camping about 2 weeks ago with the inlaws. The father in law owns a 2007 dmax and pulls a 33' jayco. He was disappointed that I bought a 6 cyl for pulling a tt. He says I should have at least bought a v-8. Just doesn't understand that this v-6 has more power for hauling heavy loads. Anyways we went on a 300 mile each way camping trip and he led. I followed with my 8500lb 31' tt. He didn't want to admit it but I could tell he was trying to pull away from me on every on ramp we took. And this little ecoboost kept right up no problem. I dont know how hard he was in the throttle but it would smoke pretty good and is completely stock. I didn't have to floor it once but did get on it. I know I was impressed.

I drove a new 6.7 PSD, CC 4x4 dually. Im thinkin the EB in a empty race would give the PSD all it wants.

How do you drive it, jackrabbit start or easy, mods? Stop and go traffic, thats all killers there. I was up against a crappy head wind and all I got was 13.2 l/100k after fill up, there are so many variables to fuel milage.
