I have a 2011 Suburban with the 5.3 and heavy duty towing and it pulls my PS200 very well. Granted its about 400lbs lighter than your boat.

Around town we average 14 mpg with the rolling terrain here. Took it on a 450 mile trip from Austin to Baton Rouge and it averaged 20 mpg (running 70-75 mph).

Towing the boat it averages 13 mpg in town and 16 on the hwy.
