Re: Anybody working to improve fuel mileage?
My 08 gets 15-16 avg in the city mixed highway . when i go up north I get 12-14 mpg. i go from 1800ish to 7000-9000 ft. now coming home it will get 17-18 all down hill with my RTT on. I have a air box and cat back exhaust. i also have a light tire and wheel package 73 lbs. my wheels only weigh 18 lbs each and the tires are 55 lbs. . if I get a heavy foot it looses 1-1 1/2 mpg. when the tent is off pick up about 1 mpg. the best it ever did was 22 mpg that was no roof rack and 265 75r-16 tires.
I see 6-8 mpg when climbing with the RTT on my scan gauge. when I wheel it it has been 10-11 mpg. I am surprised that it gets what it does. it basically has the aerodynamics of a brick.
