Ridgelines CAN'T tow
Before I get all of you hating on me...I do Love my truck for general use. but towing......its not there. Sorry guys, its a thirsty dog.
I took my 16ft, deep V aluminum boat with 40horse, 2 kids, 2 adults inlcuding me and fsihing gear to Big Bear lake CA from Palm Springs. I think its about 80 miles each way. I went the back way through yucca, where its mostly flat and then one good hill climb for 18miles..
over 160 mile round trip I used 15 gallons. roughly 10.5 miles a gallon on a boat/trailer weighing maybe litle over 1000lbs? I dont know, I was hoping 14-16 with those long stretches of open road. I kept it at 60-65 and never pushed too hard.
thats just sad. Everything is fine. tires. oil, etc...
but the truck just can't tow. One word of advice for Honda trucks....Diesel
I rather be Cummin than Stroke'n!
