I got 13.9 MG fully loaded with family and 2 dogs towing our popup from eagle to the Ranch. 14 mpg is pretty decent for an awd suv towing. I never got anywhere close to that with the 80. There were times in wyoming with a head wind i got 6.
I also was able to stay above 60, mostly going 65 on both vail pass and the tunnel unless there was traffic. Can't do that in an 80.
See you on the trail
Couple o' FJ40's, BJ70, PZJ77, UZJ100, TDI
