Going for the lowest A4 MPG's this month

To do some "back of the napkin" estimates of MPG's during trailer pulling...

The last 125 miles of the tank was without a trailer driving 60 MPH which typically net's me ~55 MPG or ~2.27 gallons of fuel. Take 125 miles and 2.27 gallons off of the above full tank numbers and you get 298 miles on 12.9 gallons for a whopping 23.1 MPG while pulling the below trailer at 60 and 70 MPH
