#118 of 121 Trailer Towing Mileage
May 15, 2008 (5:20 am)
When I got my 04 Pacifica three months ago it read 21 MPG on the gauge. I reset the readout and since have been getting 18.5 18.6. Last weekend I towed my 2000# pop-up camper on about a 400 mile trip. 1/2 way through my mileage readout was 18.9!!! I checked it with the fill-up and sure enough was getting almost 20 MPG. It showed 18.9-19 on the way back. Anyone else seen simillar results. Or am I getting WAY too little mileage without the trailer. I am considering towing the trailer all the time to see how much I can gain...

Could it be because you are driving much more cautiously with the trailer?
Try driving without the trailer, but drive as if it were still there.

Always drive it like I stole it, 70+, I even spent some time in 3rd instead of OD on the hills and through towns. I figure at this rate if I continued to tow trailer I should be around 30 at the next fill-up.
#121 of 121 Pacifica Limited 07 mpg question

I recently purchased an 07 Limited AWD with 12K miles. Over the past three weeks, I've been driving around town in northern Virginia. Standard suburban driving, no highway, no towing, regular stuff. I'm getting 11.1 mpg which I consider pretty pathetic. Anyone else experiencing this?
