Now, do tow mirrors really affect mileage due to them sticking out a little further this creating some wind resistance? I doubt it is noticeable, but that's the first I've heard anyone say that.
I have factory tow mirrors on my Tundra. i run 38 psi in my 275/65/18 Bridgestone Duellers (wish it had come with the Michelins) and I am easy on the gas pedal. I get over 19 mpg in the summer, usually around 19.3. Country highways, time my stops, keep a little space between me and the vehicle in front of me so I don't have to ride the brakes.
