Mileage on LML

I have about 1300 miles on my LML now and am just impressed. There are a few people on the site that say mileage doesn't matter but to me it was a reason to trade the F-550 in.

These are hand calculated figures and hopefully they will continue to get better.
Pulling my trailer from KY to WV round trip is about 200 miles I averaged 8.4.
Empty truck going to Louisville this weekend running 70 mph (80 a few times) 15.2 mpg.
Just thought I would share and maybe some others would post up with figures on LML's.

Diesel is amazing, and the LML in specific is very amazing... near 400 hp, 765 torque, and 19-21 mpg with no load at 60-65... I am very impressed with it.

How does it feel towing?

What are the specs on the truck?

Truck feels very stable when pulling my trailer, GM really did a good job with the boxed frame. Exhaust brake is great with the transmission they work together works well here in the east KY hills.
