does a dually get worse milage than a single rear wheel truck? the tires should last longer dont they? i just want to know how much less fuel milage you will get with a dually. thanks[cheers]

I don't think it'll make much of a difference, you are talking about a full size truck. So how does fuel economy come into it ?

Honestly, the only difference unloaded would be the increased weight of the extra wheels and the extra rolling resistance of more tires.

I can't see it making much of a difference. Like warlord said... It's Fullsize......

I like my single wheel f350.... It gets better mileage than the wife's Durango. Mind you.... mines a diesel!!

im not bitching about the fuelmileage i know its a full size. i get 20-22mpg with my 6.2L diesel and 37's and im happy with that. i was just woundering if there is a big difference between the single wheel and the dual wheel. thanks guys[cheers]

I've been running duallies for years and never noticed any difference in tired wear. if Iam hauling I'll drop the inside tire psi by 5 psi to compensate for the crown in the road......

thats smart, never thought fo that, i know lots of people just load em up and go, never compensate for stuff
