On my recent 700 mile BG trip, Bigtoe and I noticed a two mpg drop when my headlights were up. 25 vs 27. 25's not bad /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_rolleyes.gif but 27 is better /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

SMF - This was running at pretty consistent highway speeds - not variable speed type of driving, where I wouldn't expect to see much of a difference.

Manatee -- Maybe the car just uses more gas when it's dark out...

Another reason why the pop-ups have to go! Increased wind resistance! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
