Just say'n'

My buddy's Hyundai Santa Fe has been in the shop for two months awaiting engine parts that Hyundai's supplier can't provide. It will be probably another month until the thing is repaired. Meantime, he has an loaner sedan and his 19' is sitting in his driveway.

Does anyone have experience towing a 19 with a Nissan Frontier, I'd be interested in knowing your gas mileage?

Thanks,

Just to throw a non truck into the mix, I tow a 17B weighing 3000 lbs loaded with a RAV4. Sixty MPH is my upper limit, 57 MPH is more usual. 25 MPG is typical highway unhooked, and 15 MPG towing. I do use cruise control when driving the flats, but shut it off any time the transmission starts to hunt. I never use 5th gear (overdrive). Has worked OK so far - 71,000 on the RAV4, 35,000 towing.

Fran and Dave,

15 mpg towing your 5.0 with a Frontier thru the Rockies back to New Mexico from Chilliwack? I'd say OUTSTANDING!

I tow with a 1996 Tahoe, 5.6L V-8. When not towing, best gas milage ever was 21 mpg highway, keeping it under 60 mph. Of course, I'll take that in a heartbeat. When towing our 16 ft Scamp and keeping to 60mph we averaged 14 --to maybe--15 mpg. Those figures exclude all serious mountain climbing and when we crossed North Dakota.

Our new 19 is in production, we drive to Chilliwack in 4 weeks. Soon we shall see how well the Hoe does pulling the new baby. Of course, I will insist on getting no less than 14 mpg.
