Your mileage will really drop with the parking brake on
I've driven a bass boat with the anker down. It was real slow. I also ran the same boat with the trolling motor on the front still down in the water. Nearly ripped the mounts off. Double
If my mom were still alive, she would say it runs in the family. She once drove us kids from Dayton to Indy with the parking brake on. When we got home, she said she would have to have dad get the car checked because it smelled bad.
I don't know how many times I have have driven my S1800 across town just to look down and see the parking brake handle and slap my forehead. That is why I haven't adjusted the parking brake. Thank goodness I don't have air brakes.
