Re: Love my Ridgeline, but bummed with its towing capability

I don't tow very often so I look at the gas milage scenario like this:

Buy a truck like Ford or Chevy 4X4 which gets oh, say 15-17 mpg all the time for city and highway. I then use it to tow with 2-3 times a year for a total of 1000 miles and get say 13-15 mpg towing.

I tow with a ridgeline which (after checking it over 100K miles) gets overall 19.86 mpg. I tow the same as above and get 10 mpg.

Now the math:

Ford/Chevy/Dodge

30K miles/yr on the Chevy/Ford at $2.75/gal getting 16mpg = $5,156.25 spent on gas in one year.

1K miles/yr towing with same truck at $2.75/gal getting 14mpg = $196.42 spent on gas while towing.

Ridgeline

30K miles/yr on the Ridgeline at $2.75/gal getting 19.86mpg = $4,154.07 spent on gas in one year.

1K miles/yr towing with the ridgeline at $2.75/gal getting 10mpg = $275.00 spent on gas while towing.

Um, let's total these now shall we?

$5,156.25 + $196.42 = $5,352,67 spent a year for the Ford/Dodge/Chevy.

$4,154.07 + $275.00 = $4,429.07 spent a year for the Honda.
