Ya know I was gonna ask you about that too when I read your post. But I googled it first only to find out some folks have a 2.73 rear gear.

I'm not really sure what my mpg is, I went from a. 3.7L jeep liberty to a 5.7L Hemi Jeep Commander. The commander tows like nothing is behind it. Love it. The liberty wasn't bad and the A122 was well within its capabilities but you could def feel it more.

When not towing the commander gets between 13-20 depending in driving type, it's my wife's car and she works 5 miles from home so I don't really worry about MPG too much even though it's a big engine and all.

My commuter is a Smart ForTwo, which gets around 37-40mpg on premium fuel with me driving it like I stole it. I can get it into the mid 40's if I drive like grandma and ease up to speed after every stop and keep it under 65 but that's just not my style.

My off-road jeep is a 97 TJ, it's lifted and overbuilt so it doesn't do too well, probably worse mileage than the commander, but it's geared for the woods, not the highway.

I just did about 200 miles each way from CT to VT to get my a122. Going up I averaged 28.0 mpg on the way down I got 21.4 mpg towing with my SAAB 9-5 wagon.

Going up was going around 75 mph coming back was doing about 60 mph

towing fuel mpg

I have a 2010 Toyota Rav4 V6. I averaged 19 mpg towing the Aliner Classic (Aframe) back home from purchasing in NC last summer, back to IL (manually calculated). I typically average 18 mpg overall when towing the Aliner, and 23 local and 26 highway when not towing...
