thats kinda a vague question how much does the trailer weigh are you towing up any mountains etc, etc, my bet would be closer to 11 or 12 depending on youre speed and aforementioned conditions,

Idk the trailer weight but the truck I'm towing probably weighs 2500 and many another 1500 for trailer. It's not super heavy. And no mountains. I95 from nc to ga

Average speed???

I get around 13-14 towing my 2600lb car on a 1300lb open deck trailer keeping it around 65mph. Go any faster than that and your MPG's really start to drop. You may experience a little worse mileage due to the high profile and extra drag of the Ranger.

My trailer probably weighs as much as yours and there is no high profile with this truck. It's on the ground http://i20.photobucket.com/albums/b2...psb41096f9.jpg
