Ill have to add a pic in here but I tow a 1538 1970 Fisher Jon boat (square lifted nose) with my 2010 Prius. Today it was 97F full sun 60% humidity and I went 62 mph gps for 3.5 hours and I got 31 mpg. Thats with a ~ 385lb boat, 130lb yamaha 30hp motor, around 60 pounds of stuff in the boat with a cover over everything, and a single axle boat trailer with 8" wheels id assume to weigh 200. So that might be altogether around 775 pounds. Id really say its pretty close to the biggest non aerodynamic thing I would want to take down the interstate. Need to optimize some more things with it.
