Fuel Mileage....

I ran up to Idaho to hunt geese ! and towed my new 8 x 20 enclosed trailer for the first time. WOW, talk about crappy fuel mileage. I averaged like 9 mpg!

Atleast I ended up with a pile of honkers and was able to get some good film. (8 man limit with a bonus goose band)

Are you guys running the SCT Towing Tune from ID? I was really dissapointed by the 9-10 mpg on the Idaho trip. I am hopeful that I will get a little better with that Tow tune!

Well I ran down to Southern Utah to hunt with one of my guys yesterday and I ended up getting 18 mpg. Of course that was not pulling a trailer but I was pretty happy with that!
