I have a 2004 29' gulfstream on a E450 chassis with a 6.0L diesel and wonder what I will be getting if I drive around 60 mph? Anyone!
Thanks

Wiley

We're lucky if 8 showes up in the math and count our blessings. But, who buys a V10 for milage? I agree with most of the posters that if he lied about that there will be more lies to follow.... RUN FOREST... RUN...

We used to have a 1992 28' Dutchmen Class C on a E350 with the 460 Ford. 8mpg common with an occasional 7 or 9 depending on conditions. YMMV.

All you need to do to get 15 MPG with that rig is put a 500 cu in chevrolet behind and let it push you! I get 15 MPG on my 40 foot DP that way! Getting er stopped is another matter all together.

We have a 40 foot pusher and this is no lie, the C8.3 Cummins burns almost NO FUEL, in fact, trust me on this......... I have to stop about every 200 miles and let some diesel fuel out of it!!😇

On the Magna we just got the VMS was showing 7.1 overall and up to 9.9 on the flats until the engine went south.
I consider that pretty good for a 48,000# MH towing a 4,400# Odyssey with an ISX 650. That included the Grapevine and Tehachapi passes and was a round trip.

Our ISL 450 has gained more than 55% in mileage between 4000 and 6000 miles. Needless to say the mileage was really terrible for the first 3000 miles.

Overall the mileage has varied between 4.5 and 7.0.

Whats your trick PaMiller?

My 2007 class C with the V10 was about 7.6mpg just about all the time tried driving 55mph and that didn't gain enough to justify driving that slow so I just drove I would drive 70-75 depending on speed limit.

I got about 15 mpg with my last rv. It was a 90 class B built on a dodge 3/4 ton van with a 318 and I drove it 55 mph.
