    Thule roof rack?

    Hi everyone.
    I have a 2006 HCH and am considering transfering the Thule roof rack from my parents CRV to my car. I realize I'll go down on my MPG when I've got the plastic case on the roof and loaded up, but I was wondering if anyone knew how much it drag to have just the racks on? (they are pretty permanent).
    Thanks!

    I have 07 HCH and just put

    I have 07 HCH and just put on my Thule rack with 2 bike carriers and the fairing (wind deflector). It does not seem to affect city mileage at all, but anything above 80km/h (50m/h) is brutal. Goes from 55mpg to about 33mpg! I think it's mostly due to the fairing, but regardless, I am taking the whole thing off and will just take the extra 10min putting it on when I want it.
    hope this helps.
