Just towed my Dad’s old f-150 that was giving to me after he passed. Trip was over 500 miles… FL to NC. Averaged 12.9mpg with a tow weight over 6k LBs. Figured I’d be lucky to get 10 with this amount of weight. A bit of squat in the rear as to be expected. If I was towing like this frequently, I’d get some help back there.
