I have seen a 1 mpg improvement on the average by using cruise control & try to "never leave home without it on". Traveling faster than 70 mph kills the average in a heartbeat.
Thanks for the reply.
Towing at your speeds and returning 7mpg sounds more like what I would of expected. Driving at 55 and returning 6.3 seems kind of heavy to me.
Any body else able to give me their figures.?
