For me:
2007 Silverado 3500HD DRW with Duramax/Allison (this weights 7950lbs empty....I had it weighted!)
2002 Keystone Sprinter 24RKS, GVWR 7600lbs

I set the cruise to 65mph and it hums along in 6th gear at 1600rpm. :)
10-14mpg

FL 60 puller and a 40' Teton - so far on the 640 mile trip today, I fueled once in MSP - 80 gal - averaging 8mpg. We have a fleet of HD haulers from a 3500 Dodge (12 mpg) with 21,000# to a Mack COE (7 mpg) with 80,000#.

Firm believer in Gamma 88 and Centramatics. http://www.davenemo.com/

We have a 04 dodge 3/4 ton reg cab 4x4 auto and hemi. pulling a 7000lb 5ver we get 5-10 depending on hills and wind. Set the speed at 65mph and let it drink the gas.
Keep the shiney side up and the dirty side down.

97 C3500 dually with the 6.5 turbo diesel.
30' fiver, about 12K when loaded to max.

We tow exclusively at 62MPH (100 KPH) unless the limit is lower.

Over about 20,000 miles of towing with this setup we average about 22 Liters per 100 Kilometers. Depending on if we're talking imperial MPG or US MPG that's somwhere in the 11-12MPG range.
