They are steel belted load range E 12 inch trailer tires.
Steel belted tire is going to be LRR compared to bias ply.
Most small trailer tires are bias ply.
One of the tires was a little low on pressure.
Normally the trailer tires run 60 psi.

This summer I was getting 4.4 to 4.7 miles per kwh with out the trailer. That's something over130mpge, it's so high it doesn't even matter.

The load of pallets more than cuts the energy economy in half.

Beats the crap out of a pickup that never gets over 20mpg.

So about $2.50 worth of electricity is dragging home a couple days' worth of firewood. $300/month utilities for heating the grid-sourced way vs. about $40/month for heating the home-sourced way.

Sounds like an economically viable application to me.

I figure each pallet on average contains 40lb of wood.
40lb of wood is about 400,000 BTUs of heat.
Each pallet should provide heat all day when it's cold and 2 or 3 pallets will get burned over night.
So each 20 pallet trailer load of should provide at least 4 or 5 days worth of heat.
Or about $10 worth of electricity per day.

I was thinking that loaded was much worse than trailer empty especially if it is uphill. More like 2/3 so that the average both ways was twice as much.

Putting the trailer on empty drops energy economy down to around 4 miles per kwh.

So if I understand what you just said, loaded trailer isn't drawing that much extra over just empty trailer.

Not really a big difference but enough to effect range some.

Nobody sees the hilarious irony of using an EV to fuel a wood stove?

Now if I could go get coal with the EV that would be poetically circular.

Meh, wood is a "sustainable resource".

I burn natural gas for heat.

Oil Pan seems to be consistent in doing what is economically prudent.
