Gas Mileage
« on: May 22, 2020, 10:43:10 PM »
Hi, Just bought a new 32’ class A. I can remember years ago I only got around 7/8 mpg. Just curious what people are getting now on the Ford V-10.

Hi Rick g,

I have a 32 footer with the Ford V10 and get pretty consistent 7.2 to 7.4 mpg towing a car behind. Not sure what the mileage would be with out the tow.

My Sundancer 30 ft Class C with V-10 gets around 10.5 mpg with the toad. We rarely exceed 60 mph.

I will be towing a car some of the time, so that’s good to know.

Our 38' Adventurer 37F usually got 7-8 mpg with or without towing a Honda Fit. I should add that my speed is usually between 55 & 62 mph.

7-8 mpg would be typical for a Class A gas engine, but the weight of your foot on the go-pedal will have a lot to do with it. Stay under 65 on the open highway and avoid accelerating as much as possible.
