Guess the mileage drop on this Prius C with loaded roof rack

So my neighbor has this Prius C, and gave me permission to post to EM.
Year round, she drives with an empty roof rack, and sees " about 42 MPG "
( This is just the uprights and two crosspieces, and not the setup you see here. )
I asked her to glance at the F.E. the next time she drove.
Trip was " around 65 mph on mostly highway. "

The couple normally drive a Subaru suv / station wagon type vehicle, and her boyfriend says he only sees around a 4mpg drop with this same setup on that vehicle.

This is their " Battle Prius " as they call it.

So what do you all think ?

Could be lie-O-meter mileage, my golf reports 50, the gas pump says 43. I thought a 10% minimum reduction, but I don't know what the reported should be.

I got about a 20% range loss putting a 52 inch light bar on my leaf. Good thing I went with the magnetic mount.
