I haven't seen a BSFC map for a long time; I would be curious to see one for a modern road-going production engine. I had assumed it probably wouldn't be dropping off an "efficiency cliff" for a 13% RPM / load difference.
wow...not too many 3.73 vans out there...
I will post detailed mpgs later, but just completed a 8200mi trip--dc to boston to LA, sf, then back to Boston and finally home to dc.
About 50% towing a 2000lb boat trailer...with full load(est 2500-3000lbs cargo)
Overall, got about 14-15avg going west(into the wind towing) and about 17 coming back.
Overall avg for trip== 16mpg
I have 14,000mi on van now...15.27mpg lifetime avg. (This includes towing about 50% of the time)
Thanks Nate for the detailed reporting. Just curious if you don't mind me asking, on the recent California trip with a full load towing the boat and trailer, did someone hire you to help them move? In my youth I drove quite a bit from coast to coast, but nothing like you are doing!
