I didn't have a mpg gauge at the time, but when I towed my camper through the Porcupine mountiains in the UP, I noticed it was a lot easier to maintain 55 mph the further up I got, plus I was going uphill. A lot easier than any of the flat roads at lower elevation. Only reason I could think of was the air was thinner and less wind resistance.
