Oh, those things. What a great name! I rode one of those down once. It was my 50th b'day present. I loved it except for the training.

What is your average PPH X4 burn rate when doing 300 and full of GI's?
Well, I've been retired for 5 years now, so its been a while. But here goes.

Burn per engine: 1100 pounds JP-5 per hour per engine
Burn per hour 4 engines: 4400 pounds per hour
Density of JP-5: 6.5 pounds per gallon
Gallons of JP-5 per hour: 677 gallons per hour
No wind gound speed 300 miles per hour
so, about 0.45 miles per gallon of Jet Fuel
What a rush though ...

What do you figure your trailer weight loaded is John? Is your truck a 2wd?

That is awesome mileage.

What size is your TT? 42' Salem Villa Estate
What's your typical TT GVW? 11,000 lbs dry
What tow vehicle? 2006 ford SD crew cab 4x4 long box w/ 5.4 triton
MPG while towing? trip home was 600km and 210L of gas.

so 370 miles, 55.5 us gallons = 6.7 mpg... I know my bus with the 7.3 diesel would do much better.
