Well, I do trail rides every Sat, and used to do roadie the next day.. that is, until my kiddo popped out. Actually I'm ok with the fuel consumption (around 7.9km/L real-world figure). Just that, a bit tired of the whizzing sound (not the usual dull roaring, which is acceptable IMO) at highway speeds. Kinda weird cos I never encounter the whizzing with roof rack + dual bike carriers on my previous V40.Love seeing the mods. Great car in blue. Do you use the roof rack often? On my previous car I always left our roof rack in the garage until I needed to use it - which was not often. I think we really only used it to transport Christmas Trees once a year, haha... I disliked the wind noise, and did not like to increase drag on the car for no reason. It looked great, but served no real purpose for us...
Incidentally, you'd be glad to know a Stealth Hitch is on its way to me.The attached Men's Health article says that a typical roof rack on a V90-size car decreases mpg by seven percent. (There are plenty of other articles and studies if you do a search for "roof rack drag" if you want a more authoritative source than Men's Health Magazine.). For my V90, that would mean 1.8 mpg less. You can do the math and see what that's costing you. Unless you use a roof rack maybe once a week, it's silly to cart it around.
