I drove south on the continental divide through Montana into strong head winds with what amounted to a big flat wind catching sail as my load on a one ton crew cab on duallys and got 3.4 miles to a CANADIAN gallon - knock off 20% to come up with a us gal :O

I had a tuck camper mounted on a flat deck one ton dually and got 3.5 mpg - I created a convex scoop and mounted on the cab over portion of the camper and got 7 MPG - I keep trying to think of something practical to do to a skoolie to cut the wind resistance a bit - that height and no streamlining has to be a killer for good mileage
