MAX Burner Posted May 24 Share Posted May 24 We thought it would be interesting hearing general information about TUNDRA/Oliver experiences... Stuff like tire selection, rear air suspension bags, bed covers, performance data while OTT towing, hitch selection, etc., would be good to share. So, here's some performance data on a recent Ollie adventure: We drove using the tow/haul mode (which increases RPMs in our truck by approximately 2k), A/C on in "Auto", and cruise control set at 65mph. Our starting elevation was 5,550' MSL - while ending elevation was Sea Level. Our pack-plan used roughly 80% of our available useful load. Our trip was 1,435 miles R/T and our mileage on the outbound leg was 13.4mpg - inbound leg dropped mileage to 12.6mpg (likely due to head-winds and elevation gain). Our truck averages just north of 22mpg on the interstate when not towing, FYI. We relied on the mpg readout - but also calculated total mileage manually and calculated 12.9mph (111.2 gallons regular fuel used over 1,435 miles). I didn't get a chance to weigh the ensemble, but will do so next time. 2 Art, Diane, & Magnus (Aaarrf!) 2022 TUNDRA/2017 LE II; Hull #226 "Casablanca", Twins; 3x Battle Borns; HAM call-sign: W0ABX Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
