Word Document Containing Fuel Mileage Results


I know the question has come up many times about whether a Gas or Diesel Engine is better for Hauling A truck camper. This post is not about that.



My purpose here is to share our 4100+ mile trip, with our truck and camper, so that those who may be considering or wondering what a Ford V10 gets for mileage, will have some real data.



I am attaching a Word document that has all the information.



Just as an aside, we weighed 11,425 pounds leaving Penticton BC, due to fact that we acquired a rollover sofa to replace our dinette, and still had the dinette to bring home. We got a little heavier after leaving Washington, because the nice folks at Torklift, replaced my 4 receivers, and let me keep the old ones to boot. We did make it home safely, and had a great trip. Roberta and I commented the highlights were the great people we met, and the places we saw.




--------------------
01 Ford F250 SuperCab, V10, Towing Package, 8 Foot Bed. Air Bags, Incab Air Controller, Rancho 9000 Shocks, Torklifts, Water and Tranny Temperature Guages, Vision 81, 19.5 Aluminum Rims and Michelin 225/19.5 Tires. 3 inch Catback Exhaust System.

One of you lines shows .75/mile. Is that an error?

Good info for folds considering a V10. I added it to this sticky thread.

Thanks,
Brad

I did drive some distance at 65 mph. I would think 1 to 2 mpg less.

$41.74 UNION 76 ELLENSBURG Gas 13.47 97 7.20 34796 $3.10 $0.75

That line says .75/mile; which is about double the other entrys.

Thanks, it should have read 116 miles, and .360 cents per mile.

Is there a way I can upload the excel file for this data?

Not that I know of, at least not a "real" Excel file with formulas and all that. You might could save it as a .pdf and then open it in your photos editing software and then save it as a .jpg.
