I run 7-9 axle lowbeds with a lot of off highway/steep grades and we never get good fuel mileage but when running the dd15 side by side with 2 c15/550’s and a c16/600, the detroit will do +10% better, pulling same weights at the same speed.

Which is better a Detroit or a DD16?

If you a van driver keeping under 80k, you would be better off with a d15 for fuel economy. This is the best job I have had.
