Highway Mileage Inquiery

We picked up our 2009 Borrego V8 AWD about six months ago. Have already towed with it and know the HWY MPG for that.

What Hwy mileage is everyone getting not towing?

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I have a Limited V8 2WD and get between 20-23 MPG on the highway. When towing my 2010 Keystone Outback 210RS (about 5000lbs) I get 7-9 MPG. I think it is mostly due to how TALL the Outback is (10' 11" to the top of the A/C unit). It is like pulling a billboard through the wind.

Just got back from an 800 mile round trip, all expressway and probably averaged 75 mph. Got 21.3 mpg on the trip computer and am happy with that with 4 on board the V8 2WD. On a day long very back road trip on level ground averaging under 60 mph this big vehicle delivered 25.6 mpg.

Thanks very much for all the info. Be going from Chicago to Sarasota. The hilly parts in Tennessee will be a mpg killer.

My mileage pretty much mimics Testpoints. If I don't drive "stupid", I can get 25+ on the highway with my 2wd Limited.

3.8 4x4 gets about 18 mpg at 75 mph for me. I can get v into the twenties if I keep it below 60

Oddly enough, the V6s don't seem to get the mileage the V8s get. Go figure!
