    Does anyone know what the gear ratio is on my new 2010 AC v6? It has the tow package. I was wondering if the tow package model gets different gears than non tow package trucks? I am wondering why my gas milage is so bad and thought this may be the issue. Any thoughts?

    Define "so bad".

    How many miles does it have on it? How are you tracking the mileage?

    500 miles on it, it's going to break in for the next few thousand miles anyway.

    After 20,000 miles I have seen an overall average of 18.5 or so miles per gallon. Most tanks are 18-21 mpg and the average has been creeping up.

    3.73, same gears. tow package is just a bunch of bolt on upgrades...not an issue of your bad gas mileage.
