I did an experiment over memorial day weekend. I borrowed my brothers EcoDiesel Grand Cherokee and towed my trailer from Utah to Yellowstone and had a 14.1MPG average over 354.4 miles. On my 08 V8 Pathfinder towing it home to Utah I barely got 8 MPGs. Both ways I tried to maintain 65 MPH. The Jeep held the speed easier.
Here's the new ride:
