20 MPG Towing last weekend

Race season has officially started and I'm getting an average of 19.9 to 20.1 MPG towing a 14x7 v-nose trailer with estimated 5,500 lbs if I keep it at 65 MPH and cruise control on. No tail gating and when I hit traffic I keep long following distance and just idle along with no car if someone cuts in front. This includes some mountains in North Jersey down / back to NJMP in South Jersey. Pretty much all turnpike but with some heavy traffic but some cut through streets with lots of lights.

Re: 20 MPG Towing last weekend

That's really impressive for pulling that load. What kind of car are you racing that fits in a 7 foot wide trailer? Miata?
