OBTW, you don't need a trailer to tow a CRV.

Yep on the mileage. We had a '98 Santara 35' with the 460 carbed engine, got 5.5 to 6.5 mpg no matter what. Towed a '95 Hondy Ody on a dolly most of the time.

The CR-V is easy to tow four down and it and the Fit are approved for four down towing by Honda.

Thanks again.

Charles.
According to the 2001 Towing Guide published by FMCA the 2001 CR-V IS towable four down unless you have a front wheel drive stick transmission. Not sure if they even made them that way from the listing.
