Ok ok so summer trip with cargo box traveling 80 mph improves fuel mileage over winter (same trip) at 90 mph without cargo box resulted in a 2+/- .5 mpg improvement.
I wasnt expecting it, but very happy with it.

In the future, I will attempt to maintain 80mph speeds so I can have better fuel mileage. BUT 90+ mph is so much more fun.

Wow, your road trip has made my 214 mile journey towing our caravan to our holiday destination look like we've nipped to the store for some milk🤣
You have my respect and admiration 👍
jon. The more you drive your Touareg, the farther your adventures become.
Enjoy the ride where ever the roads and trails may lead.

Lady Viking,
Glad to hear you enjoying your trip so. Enjoy the reenactment.

Here's a sample chart of a similar experiment with various vehicles to illustrate the impact of speed on MPGs.

Some of those vehicles drop 30%. Always thought it was closer to 20% in general. Gas prices makes one want to mosey across this great land taking in the scenery.
