fuel consumption with roofrack

Mon May 20, 2013 2:11 pm

I forgot to mention, I also have a 3.5m easyawn 2000 fitted to my rack.

Not sure if the awn accounts for the extra 1km/lt I seem to be losing.

All my references of empty rack includes the awn. I have never tried the rack without the awn.

Bennvdm, think you hit it on the head - that awning probably accounts for about 1km/l.
