So I'd be right in saying it was the rims and tires then? Would varying loads between 500 and 1500 lbs account for any fuel loss, or would that be negligible?

I'm still hoping to see 30+ soon. That will make it more viable based on fuel savings (over EPA) to start building the turbo 2.0 that I want. (1.8 if I can find/make the proper sleeves)
