    Red face Towing a horsebox with a 1UZFE TaYOta with autobox

    Hi I converted a TATA Telcoline into a TaYOta by fitting a 1UZFE motor and auto box... I have not enjoyed a towing vehicle this much for a long time... however I am beginning to feel exceptionally Fuelish for going this route because despite 4 dyno tuning sessions, remapping and several alterations I cannot get more than 5km/litre towing or not towing I obviously do not drive it to its capacity because of the responsibility of considering the horses well being,, so what can anybody tell me to help me improve the economics of getting to distanceriding events?? Once again PLEEEEZZE help you technical fundis...
