Agreed. I run the same. I believe the book says 1 psi for every 50 lb of added pin weight.

Yes, 50 psi in bags supports a 2500lb load, 100 psi supports 5000lb load etc...

At that ratio I'd be running 25-30 psi with 1300-1400 pin weight. Seems less bouncy at 55 psi. I like the idea of taking some of the pounding off of the springs too.

19.5L/100km since I'm in Canada. That's "aboot" 12.1 mpg so far over 6000 miles.
It's still a lot of fuel at 1.375 CD/liter.

We got 8.7-8.9 out of our new "bus" pulling through the mountains our last trip. I think we might be able to break into the 9s on flat ground, how exciting!
