Borrowed a company truck from my work and a dump trailer and loaded up some pine trees I cut down at my brothers house last week

Did you have to refill the gas at the end of the driveway?

No but the battery died half-way through raising the hydraulic system for dumping the trailer at the dump and I had to floor it in gear to empty the trailer

With no trailer it gets around 7.5-9.1 MPG. At work I am the FFCM (Fleet Fueling & Cleaning Manager) so I have time between fill ups to calculate mileage. With a trailer its around 6.1 MPG.
I miss our old F350 (200? F350 Super Duty - 7.3L PowerStroke V8 - DRW - 5th Wheel - 4WD...61 Gallon Fuel Tank lol)
