I see a ~2MPG drop with a fully loaded roof top carrier from Yakima. Of course, that is also with the car chock full of vacation stuff, two people and a dog, the air conditioner on and a somewhat heavy right foot. All in all, it's worth 2MPG to me. I see no penalty with the cargo box carrier bars alone. Mine is a wagon, if that matters.
