Default Another Gas Mileage Comment

Ok. My first "non GM" at 51 years. That was a big step for me to buy a rice burner. I always wondered about them though. We bought a real nice 06 pathfinder LE. Real nice vehicle and am impressed with it. The ride performance and handling are impressive. I bought it to tow light loads and take to take some miles off of my 06 silverado w/a 6.6 duramax diesel.

I did tow 2 full size 4 wheelers from the cabin in central Pa to Lancaster Pa the other day and got 14.7 mpg and ran about 68mph. Heck, the duramax would get high 18's on the same tow. That pathfinder towing mileage seems a bit of a let down and I had hoped for mid 16's or so. I am towing about 2,000lbs and tow on a 14' Alum., Tandem trailer. Again about 2 grand.

All filters are clean, performance while towing is better than I expected and the pathfinder does not labor in the least. Heat is good and revs are about 2100 @ 68mph. Overdrive holds fine on flat road and modest inclines, so I used it when I could. Probably about 80% of the 145 mile trip was in od.

Sound normal?
