Friday Teardrop Photo
Gassing up at Chevron near Lakehead, California.
Some people ask me about fuel economy while towing a teardrop trailer and I think it will depend on your vehicle and its own towing capabilities. My Kia Sportage V6 4x4 vehicle gets around 30 miles to the gallon normally, and about 26-28 mpg when towing the Sunflower. In money terms, it cost us about half a tank of gas ($25) to go to our favorite locations about 100-150 miles from our home.
I will be keeping track of how much it costs us in gas to drive the nearly 800 miles up to Yellowstone National Park this August.
