    My 2008 Chevy duramax diesel gets approx 10.8 mpg when traveling at 65 mph.

    It was noticeable. I removed it one trip to see and I did notice the difference in power. It could have been other variables (ie. Weather) but the filter is what I blame.

    Looks like our rigs are about the same weight and with the same towing speed I also get about 8.

I am pulling it with a short bed 2007 2500HD6.6, all stock. The trailers dry weightis just under 11K. It towed like adream. I haven't towed anything thisheavy with this truck before and was wondering what you 'all get for mileage. Around town I get about 17, on the road20-22. Towing the trailer I was gettingright at 8.6. Speed limit in Texas is 75where I was at so I set the cruse at 70 and it never budged off of that. Towing something that heavy and at that speedI assume that the 8.6mpg is about right. Anybody getting better? If so letme know (a possible excuse to get a new truck).

    There is a quirky law of physics that mentions that friction goes up by the square of speed. Head winds and tail winds have dramatic effect on mpg. Speed creates a significant head wind. So my advice is to slow down and enjoy life especially when fuel is as high priced as it is. I drive 62 mph and get 12.5 ave mpg over the last 1500 miles across while driving coast to coast. Most modern diesels do about the same. Oh yes, then there are the tires--
