madien voyage this holiday/1st tow

Ill let u all know how it goes, (mileage, etc) I should not even know TT is there(only weighs 6000lbs) im really excited about towing with this truck. I towed with a 5.4 liter f-150 before. i got 8-9 mpg with gas, hoping for 12-13 mpg with this truck. I only drive 55-60mph unless the speed limit is higher i will go the speed limit then whatever it is. I know.....laugh ,...oh btw I polished.the heck out of the paint with a dual action buffer and mcquires clear coat polish and then gave it a good coat of mcquires extreme wax, wow does it look good............roy

Definitely let us know how it goes, and have a safe and awesome trip Roy.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*
