I currently have a 1997 Class-C (31 foot) Ford Dutchmen with a Triton V-10. I have recently found a (33 foot) 1997 Four Winds Class-A with a 12 foot pullout. The problem is, it only has a 7.5 Litre V-8 EFI engine.
Right now I am extremely happy with the gas mileage and power of my Triton engine but I like the styling (and pullout) of the Class-A. I worry the V-8 wont be powerful enough and thus will get much worse gas mileage.
I drove 1500 kms on $350 fuel with the Triton which I consider very good. Any idea what I could expect with the V-8?
I have combed the net and am not having much luck. Any and all suggestions and direction is greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much. Hmmm, I think with my Class C I'm getting about 10 miles per gallon but am not exactly sure? Although I'm not towing anything with it. I just worried the V-8 would be working alot harder and hotter than the V10 and thus problems will occurr.
I guess its hard to compare apples to apples when you are looking at a Class-A VS Class-C and then add on two different engines to compare also!
