Diesel Wk2: What towing MPG are you getting?

I'm picking up my 24' toy hauler next Saturday. Fully loaded it will probably weight a little under 5,500lbs. I have a 2011 Overland Hemi. From what I have read I don't expect to get more than 8mpg when towing.

The 2014 Diesel coming stateside is on my radar. Interested in hearing about towing gas mileage from you guys across the pond. Thanks.

Suggest you might want to check out the following weblink, where there is a whole sub forum group on the wk2 & towing. Somewhere in the 92 pages you should find what you seek, or simply ask there as you have here. Would just need to convert our Litres/Kilometers to your mpg.
www.caravanersforum.com
Hope this helps.

Thumbs up Re: Diesel Wk2: What towing MPG are you getting?

Just come back from traveling with a mate 2014 limited CRD and he was towing an enclosed car trailer 3000kg and got 11.9lt per 100kilometres!

My 2012 doing the same trip 9.6lt per 100 towing a tandem box trailer so the 8 speed really he alps on the 2014 given his block that he was towing!

Here's a recent towing review with a 7k trailer.
