Humor vs frustration

The sign on the back window of our towed gives people a chuckle until they can pass us. EVERYONE on the road passes us since my cruise control is set at 55MPH for best fuel mileage.
We have gotten a lot of thumbs up, laughs, pictures, and friendly horn toots.
In parking lots it is a great conversation piece.

Oh well, can't get the upload to up load.

Have you actually done a measurement over a good period of time to ascertain whether or not you are really getting better mileage?

I've done this with several cars that I've owned, and found there were little or no savings in mileage whatsoever. You need to do a long tests, like 2-3,000 miles to eliminate non-mileage variables that could impact the measurement.

On our coach, 60 or 70, toad or no toad, seems to have very little impact at all on our 7mpg.

I do hope you pull your rolling roadblock over on the shoulder to let cars by when they pile up behind you.

On a four or more lane highway, I stay in the right lane and they can pass all day long. On a two lane road I do the speed limit, typically 55 mph or under; and if behind me they can relax and enjoy the ride until there's an opportunity to safely pass. Most do; however, there are the idiots who will stop at nothing, including cross a double yellow to pass.

Met a fellow with identical rig same year andodel. He said his speed control for 70 miles an hour telling me use either five over or five under and he got 6 1/2 to 7 miles per gallon I told him that I set my cruise control for 55 and was getting 11.12 miles per gallon I didn't see anything around me that made me want to leave it at 70 miles an hour after all it is our home
