Re: Fuel economy with Escape 19'
I have been driving my Dodge Laramie Long horn 1500, for over 30 thousand K so far and get good milage. So far this year we have been to Alaska twice, and a couple of locations maround here. Bush roads can be hard on fuel.
The truck through city and highway driving gets about 20 K per litre, when I am pulling the 19 I get around 17 K per litre.
I also have 118 litres in tha tank as well as 218 litres in a slip tank in the back of the truck as well as a 2KW generator.
Some of the mountain roads are quite steep, especialy coming out of Skagway. not so bad going to Haines
The engine in my truck is the Hemi 390 hp, that cuts down to 4 cylinders when on easier going, and around the city.
The 19 tracks well and is hardly noticable.
With all the weight My biggest worry is heat build up in the tires on a hot day, with all the weight in back.
