veggie oil weight does matter

today i took the Chevy Colorado to go get a hundred plus gallons of vegetable oil.. the best i was able to pull off was 33.5 MPG usually i can break 35 mpg for a round trip.. weight surly matters .. I had the two 55 gallon barrels tucked up next to the cab witch should have helped areo-dynamically.. the barrels weigh about 300 pounds each i was hauling about 600 lbs of raw oil and my MPG surly was hit by the added weight.
