I'd at least guess it's close to my normal average, but I've been EOC as much as possible this tank.
And tell us again how hauling a few hundred lbs (about 2 passengers worth) in an enclosed vehicle would have any effect on your mileage over 140 mi @ 70 MPH ????

Maybe if now you go "Well I forgot to mention it was all stop and go back roads"
Like frank lee said, you cant take the good and dump the bad. Heck I'd love to dump all my hauling tanks so would some others that use open trucks / trailers for work but we don't.
It's kind of like the thread about deflating your EPA #s to make your percentages seem bigger .........

I can't understand why my MPG's are so low..........
21,000lb, 41' Toy Haulers are rough on FE!
