At the beginning of summer I added a yakima roof rack to santa fe. Railgrab setup, fairing, and two king cobra bike holders. My MPG dropped to 17mpg on the highway. Removed rack, mpg back up.

Just curious to those with the factory cross bars or a another roof rack, did you see a big drop in mpg?

I expected a little drop, but not that much. I installed a hitch and a yakima holdup. MPG is back to normal.

I was curious if the factory cross bars caused a drop.

The King Cobra's are your culprit. Those things are HUGE air dams. I have the Thule Aeroblades with Rockymounts bike trays and only lost 1mpg hwy.
