Filled up @ 3.79/gallon (22gallons = $87). Put on 227 miles (with 14' trailer in tow). Averaged 9.7 mpg!
227miles @ 3.79/gallon @ 9.7mpg 12 hour day= $7/hour. Doesn't look like my truck is even earning minimum wage. I think it's time to fire her unless she can be more productive.

|hammer7896||I had a 6.0 gas GMC 3/4 ton 4x4 and my average was 12 mpg,My best was 16 mpg,if I towed a trailer even one day my average dropped to 10 or less. Now I have a 2004 GMC 1 ton dually extended cab with a duramax that I tow a trailer with nearly everyday and still average 12 mpg, my best in the dually was 17 mpg. I also now have a 2005 GMC 3/4 ton extended cab shortbed which averages 14-15 mpg and my best with it was 19 mpg.|

I'm paying about $5.20 a US gallon. ( I converted it ). It's not the cost of fuel that bothers me. I just pass that cost onto the client.
It's the miles I am putting on the truck. Too many out of town jobs. Instead of getting four years out of the truck ( hitting end of extended warranty ), I will only get three years out of the truck.
I may keep it. But normally I trade them every four years. Now it's every three? That's worth about eight grand.
