I get 11 mpg @ 65 mph and 12 mpg @ 60 mph. I don't pull any faster than 65 mph so I don't know about that, but I'm guessing it would drop to 10 mpg at 70 mph.

How much weight is being transferred to rear axle/ tires when you tow nose high? My Carlile's are rated for 85 mph....I don't tow that fast, but it's nice to have a safety margin
