6x2 with single taglift (sadly only dually tag is available ingame). Best handling layout and in real life is the best layout for hauling up to 44tons in any weather conditions. Only downside is that they can be a bit unpredictable for inexperienced drivers and tend to be rather bouncy on the motorway.

For me it's 4x2 since I don't have to refuel as often.

4x2s. Mostly for the fact the fuel tank is double the size when compared to a 6x2.

That also depends on your truck's configuration. A rigid 6x truck can have a tank as large as a 4x2 tractor unit. :P
