How many miles are on your gasser?

how many miles do you have on your GAS coach,what year is it, which chassis do you have and what engine and/or driveline problems have you experienced? Which engine? Not interested in diesel input, thanks.

Mileage is directly disproportional to the position of the gas pedal.
I have a 35QBA V10, and 9 is about right, relatively flat terrain and 65mph. After that, seems like it takes a bunch of pedal to push the air out of the way.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Our '02 Georgetown had 18,000 miles on the clock when we sold it last December. 12,000 of them were put on by the original owners in the 8 years they owned it and the other 6,000 by us during the three seasons we used it.

The generator Hobbs meter had 48 hours showing when we bought and about 75 hours when we sold.

2007 Itasca Suncruiser on Workhorse W24 Chassis. 38,000 problem free miles. Bought 2.5 years ago with 16,000 one owner miles. Has GM 8.1 with Allison 6 speed.

FYI, I just had Ultrapower, iridium plugs and Magnum wires along with Koni Shocks done to chassis. I thought it was a great set up before the mods, now it is an exceptional set up.
