Traveling with full water tanks

Traveling with full water tanks

by Julie

(Ontario, Canada)

Question: I was wondering if you travel with your fresh water at half full, would you not save a little on gas due to less weight?

Answer: We think there might be some improved fuel efficiency, but we have not done any testing to check it out. We make our decision on filling the fresh water tank based on how far we are traveling and how likely it is that we might want to boondock. We also tend to be prepared for any unexpected travel delay.
