5. 10 year old coach with 99K miles
6. Cummins ISC 330 HP power plant
7. not too hot or cold
I average 7.9 to 8.4 MPG. This is confirmed with the Scan Gage and manual filling of the tank. All this being said, any of the above mentioned items can throw the MPG out the window.
If you can determine the environmental conditions are as stated and you travel at 60 MPH, one could compare my results with what you get. All things being equal, if you are considerably lighter than me, you should be at a higher MPG.
This is the honest truth.
