Default Chevy 6.0 Gas Fuel Mileage?

Looking to purchase a Chevy 2500 6.0 Gas burner two or four wheel drive. Need some TRUE fuel mileage numbers from previous or present owners please. I will be using it as a work truck. Thanks!

If you're not towing you'll get above 10.

My silverado SS 2WD gets 18 mpg on the highway according to the dash, never checked it myself, I had a 4wheel drive 6.0 truck and got 12 mpg, so if you dont need a 4x4 the extra mileage on a 2x4 is worth it

2005 1500HD CCSB with 3.73 4WD
10 mpg towing 26' trailer
12 mpg around town
14-15mpg empty interstate driving staying under 70 mph, the faster you go the worse it gets
