Larry, great minds think alike. We use the same math!

Ditto 1ciderdog.

We just turned over 20,000 miles towing our Honda Pilot behind our Journey 39K and averaged 7.8 MPG. That is with a target highway speed of 60. Lots of mountains in those miles. Five of the last six weeks were over 5,000 elevation.
