Roof Basket MPG ?'s

Anybody w/ a roof basket, have you experienced a negative gas mileage result? Do the air deflectors help at all? Anybody able to use kayak mounts in conjuction w/ their baskets? Thanks, emsjeeper.

Mine dropped about 1.5 mpg with the addition of a Loadwarrior. It ended up evening back out with the K&N though. Mine actually does better without the wind deflector that came with it. I have used kayak mounts on top of the rack.

I have a loadwarrior too. I did not experience any drop in mpg due to it, even when loaded with a kayak. See this thread for pics of my basket with our kayak on it.

Re: Roof Basket MPG ?'s

Thanks for the help, it looks like the CAI is definately a must w/ the 3.7. Does the Megawarrior mount straight to the factory rack easily?

Yes, it is very easy to mount. I recommend the extension too.
