Well if you want to be picky,
My 5'er gets about 3000mpg of LP! That all the fridge burns while moving...
Of course my truck gets about 11.5 at 68..

Yep, I guess I should have put that in too.
My VMSpc shows I also get 256 going downhill, but only 3 going up!! In fact I've seen 3.3 on the flats, fighting a headwind at 70 mph in the Columbia Gorge. Luckily Newmar was paying the fuel and I was in a hurry to get home!

I went over two years without topping up my LP tank, then it only took 12 gallons (40 gallon tank @ 80% = 32 gallons usable)

I experienced those 70MPH 'Gorge' headwinds in a Gasser! Awesome for windsurfing! Not so much for gas mileage.....

When I towed my 5er the overhead readout was always 20-21 mpg but it never got anywhere near that. Amazing how the companys seem to have things set up to make you feel good, until you do the math. Although some believe they really get that.
