Welcome to the Site!
2011 Silverado with a 6.2, is that the 1500 trailer max? So all I can comment on is what I have read about the 1500 on line! You will probably see the same Mileage as us with the 2500HD. I think i remember seeing 10mpg in the city and 14 on the hwy

I dont know if its fact or myth that an SUV will get better milage due to Aerodynamics or lack of drag due to no tailgate however that mileage sounds terrible.
The 6.0 in my suburban 2500 will get no worse than 13.8 in town and at least 18-19.5 mpg on areg. basis and thats with a Tire size larger than offered on the 2500 suburban, But i do drive like an adult and dont bury the gas pedal.2007 Suburban 2500 Edge evolution CS leveled 265 goodyear Silent Armor Pro Grade Kenwood DNX6180 Nav.Radio

My 04 2500HD 6.0 gets about 11.5MPG around town.
We had about 3" of snow last week so I stuck it in 4WD. 9.3MPG over about 120 miles of mostly in town driving.2004 2500HD Crew Cab LT 4x4 6.0L
No mods (yet). Just like God and GM made her.

How does the MPG on the turbo diesel compare? I am under the impression that it's best suited if you are towing most of the time with the truck, since the diesel towing MPG is better than gas towing MPG. Even with the higher cost of Diesel.
