Hey All- Just wanted to introduce myself - Bill H. Just bought a used 2019 Silverado 3500 dually. Sold my 2002 Ford F-250-7.3 diesel srw. Love the new Chevy so far, lots of new gadgets & it pulls real good, we pull a 32' fifth wheel, super comfortable to drive. I will post a couple pics up. Glad to be here & look forward to the wealth of knowled KIMG0188.jpg

Started out new at 16 mpg at 60mph, (14 around town) empty and now with 49,000 on the clock and getting 20 mpg empty at 60. Not sure about around town as we have been traveling a lot lately with the trailer in tow. Always was at 12 while towing at 62mph.

Welcome to the DF, nice truck!
Thanks Mray - Glad to be here. Does the 4" exhaust help truck breath better?

Sounds pretty good- Id be happy with 11-12 towing. A little over 40k on my truck & around town not towing I see from 17-18 mpg. Havnt towed enough to really get any numbers yet. We pulled the 5er about 30 miles just to try it & make sure it rode pretty level and was getting around 12.5 from the dash, not hand calculated.
