Just returned from my first outing with the van on the back. weight of van approx 1400kg and a 240 mile round trip. Really had to work through the gears to maintain any sort of speed and found the CR-V gutless on any steep hill. Also found the engine to be "pinking" if diesels do this? .just wondering if anyone else as towed with a CR-V and what sort of performance they got. I am wondering if super market fuel is not helping and wound the engine pinking cause a lack of power? Previously towed with a 140 bhs Mondeo which was no trouble at all and seemed to have plenty in reserve. CR-V IS 2.2 150 BHP with 36k on the clock. Any advice greatly appreciated. Regards Trend07 .
