A question I get asked frequently is, what axle ratio works best for towing and hauling heavy loads and how will it affect my fuel economy?

Fuel economy is affected any time you tow or haul heavy loads, but there is a compromise between being able to tow or haul heavy loads and still get decent fuel economy when you’re not towing. Check out my article titled Axle Ratios – Towing vs. Fuel Economy to learn more about the options you have when it comes to axle ratios for towing and fuel economy.
