just an FYI thats for uhals legal ***, if you are goign to fast and a strong wind coems along it could potentially topple the trailer thus prolly spinning tow vehicle out and or dystroying all stuff inside said trailer.

covers thier butt then they can say well it says right on the trailer speed limit 45 so they were speeding not our problem

Some of the best gas mileage I got with the Dakota was with heavy loads over long distances.
Aren't computers wonderful?

I use and talk about, but don't sell Amsoil.

I'm in Sparks, NV right now and should really post some figures from my gas log but it is too nice a day to sit in my hotel. The worst mileage I have had so far was on the way from Sheridan, WY to Yellowstone NP. There are two passes in the 8500 foot range so I spent a lot of time in 4th or even 3rd gear because of all the switchbacks. That tank was just a little over 26 mpg. Driving around in the park was mostly 4th gear at 45 mph which netted me about 33 mpg. The more I drive this Jeep the more I am glad I bought it. Jeep really should advertise a bit more, this is a great little SUV.
