Bet you a dollar to a dounut you will not see any change. One thing you should check. Tire pressure is crucial to milage

Hook a car to it and slow down to 55 MPH and you may get 6.5-7 MPG

What year is your MH? If it's older, like mine, you may not get much better. I have an older 87 454 and have had it tuned, proper air pressure, don't carry excess items, run about 13K and get 5.5. My mechanic says the only thing left to do would be to rebuild the carb. But for that it's about $300+ and the amount of travel we do and the price of gas it would take a long time to recoup the cost. If you haven't had it tuned up try that first and if not you may not have much hope of increase vs. cost to do that.
