1999 v70 t5m56 trailer mileage report

Post by abscate » Fri Jun 05, 2020 3:46 am

Drove 500 miles with a 4x8 HF trailer yesterday, and my 65-70 mph cruise mpg dropped from 27 to 24, roughly. Last half was with a 500 pound load

I was picking up an engine and was contemplating trying to load it into tailgate to save gas, glad I didn’t.

Tires run 80 psi on the trailer, which probably helps rolling resistance.

Hmmmm, interesting targeted ad. Google, do your customers know what they are paying for?

They probably only know if their marketing professionals tell them. I guess alot of companies still randomly throw money down google's drain with little impact, as impressively documented by your screenshot.
