Just A Quick 3400 Mile Haul With My Rig

I just went on vacation to the Southwest corner of Colorado to do some off-roading in my side by side. The truck performed flawlessly for the load it was hauling. We maintained a steady 10 MPG driving 65 MPH and hauling around 4500 lbs.

10 mpg seems respectable with the tow load
