As I'm fairly new to this group, I didn't check to see if this topic had been dealt with before. I just looked. Yeeeha! Y'all been down this road before back in May and June! I shoulda known! I see some of the same handles... and arguments. Some interesting data has come out, now and back then. Good stuff to file away. I doubt we'll reach a consensus here (one could say there's no such thing as a "consensus" on physics and science anyway... it's either correct or not ), but it's sure a fun road to ride down... whether your tires are overinflated or not!

My ultimate goal is not necessarily the highest mpg but to make my trucks more efficient configured as I need them.
