MPG Ford V10

We are going to take my 95 Jeep Wrangler and turn it into our tow behind. Any idea of what kind of MPG I can expect when towing it. I know it won't be exact but just trying to get a feel for it.

34' Fleetwood Bounder Classic

Thanks,

Troy

Not much different from not towing. 6.5-7.5 depending on how heavy your foot is.

That is kind of what I was figuring. Pretty light on the foot these days, gas is expensive.

Gas mileage on the toad will be great!
Oh, you mean the MH
Sorry about that

The strange thing about our Adventurer is that it doesn't seem to know or care if the Wrangler or the bass boat is in tow. 8.0 to 8.4 at 57 to 60 mph. The weight of the foot makes a lot of difference. Our philosophy is if we need to be there sooner we'll just have to leave a little earlier.

We didn't notice much difference in our mileage when we added the Jeep toad. Of course, we have only made one trip with the toad, and it was mostly flatland towing.
