Garage
Our drivers report mileage daily and the boss made a copy of the fuel bill for February so I have fairly accurate numbers though with the oversize tires we checked it out to be 5% over. Taking it all in for February we ran almost 8300 miles and used 424 gallons for a 19.75 MPG average. Big note is that I checked the idle hours vs. running hours and we are idling this thing at 35% of the running hours. I'm not happy with that but its to the passengers so we just have to deal with it.

We have whole whopping 165 miles on the Beast (formerly known as the vacamobile). Miles are pretty well mixed between rural and highway. Computer-generated MPG is 16.7; and increasing with every mile. More later!

Welcome also . . .

Excellent results for the HR EL. What mileage app were you referring to (maybe just the Transit's computer?), and do you have your phone/tablet set up on the dash for this app, and maybe music, phone, and traffic etc. apps, like rmcnelly?

See post #3 here:

Thanks for reporting. I'm curious, how tall is your trailer, and about how much does it and van weigh? Even a rough estimate is better than nothing in order to put data in context.

Any chance you have a picture of van with trailer combo you can post?

By the way, how did it tow? Did you have downshifts on hills, enough power for merging, etc...? Anything you'd want different?
