Just got back from a trip to Fl., 2200 mi. round trip, with our 98 Coachhouse on a Dodge chassis with 5.9L 360 magnum. We average 13.5 mpg. We had strong winds most of the way. The best I ever got on this rig was 15 mpg.

2006 Leisure Travel Sprinter (Free Spirit B210 model, 2500), new to us about 15 months ago.

On 7 week trip last summer from East Coast to Utah, actual figures on diesel gallons and miles ended up at 23.1 mpg.

We drive speed limit or below.

NCWriter, does that rig have the older inline 5 engine or the new V6?

I5. The Sprinter did not go to the V6 until the 2007 chassis year which would have been 2008 Class B conversion model years for most.

We have a previously owned 190 Popular on the 2005 Chevy and I have a spread sheet with all the miles and all the gas since we got it.

Overall for 47670 miles we have gotten 14.36 mpg. On I95 from Maryland to Florida we get a bit over 15 mpg at 62.5 mph which is my usual speed. Around town I think it varies somewhere between 10 and 12 mpg. Last fall driving north on the Blue Ridge Parkway we got 11.6 mpg which surprised me as I have gotten better in the Rocky Mountains.

2007 PW Excel on Ford E-350 V8: 14.4 mi/USgal average over 27,000 km. Not used as a daily driver, only for camping/touring in the Canadian rockies. Kept record of every single fill since purchase.

My downsize to a 19' American Cruiser has been a glorious revelation to our rving travels. 15/16 mpg at 60 mph on cruise control BUT now we do not miss any interesting roadside attractions since we no longer need parking space for 57' of big rig w/toad. can now enter any city and park anyplace you can park a car including at a metered street spot, finally enjoy the beaqch and can now enter any service station or store parking lot without a thought, down the 8% grades on the Skyline Drive or Colorado mountains with no hysteria or white knuckles, ample room for two,now smiling,rv ecplorers.

I am getting 13.5 - 14 mpg around town, and 16 mpg @ 55 mph on the highway in my Roadtrek 170. The ScanGuage I recently installed is helping me determine my best speeds and I hope to improve on the above numbers.

I just got back from a 3200 mile round trip from Minnesota to Big Bend National Park in Texas. Mileage ranged from 13 to 15.5 with an average of 14.4 mpg. My rv is a 1999 Leisure Travel Van based on a Dodge 3500 with a 5.9 liter engine. I drove between 55 and 60 mph and took mainly secondary roads.
