25 mpg with 2000 lbs in tow!!!!!!

I went up to Superior to pick up some shingles yesterday and took a friends 800 lb trailer for the ride....to carry the 1200 lbs of shingles.(mom took the rest in her van) I built this little fairing to help the MPG #s and it worked. Couldn't even tell it was back there My wife helped

I woke up to this and drove on BLACK ICE the ENTIRE WAY EXCEPT FOR ABOUT 10 MILES!!!!!!
