I was wondering what kind of gas milage do folks get with newer Class c's? My old 79 dodge with a 440 gets between 7 and 8. I went to look at new ones last week and the guy didn't really know what his new ones got. He thought maybe 11 or so, But I'm sure he was guessing.Thanks Pat

Pat P welcome to irv2
Haven't owned class C in a while but they should be getting your mileage or better. I have a class A W-22 after a reprogram of ECM I gained another 2mpg for a 22,000 lb coach. The Ford chips can be reprogramed also for better mpg with the prices as they are should pay off in the long run. They now have Diesel in the class C line that should get some good mpg's.

Hi Pat and welcome. Many different claims on milage. I think it has a lot to do with size-wieght how heavy your foot is etc. I have a 26 footer with a slide and get mid 8's if I drive the speed limit. Ford V10 not towing. Hope this helps. Scotty.

Hi we have a 27ft C with a cummins diesel that gets 11 to 13 depending how fast we drive, Speed seems to be the biggest factor in M.P.G. We usually drive 65 pulling a toad on level ground gets 11.5 to 12. speed an mtns. the mpg really take a hit.

Just got back from a short trip to warmer country. 1000 miles @65 MPH produced 8.6 MPG.

Our little Mercedes diesel in our Winnebago View is getting us, on average, the following (I drive about 65 mph with or without toad):

14 to 15 mpg with toad (about 2500 lbs.).
16 to 17 mpg without toad.

Our 06 23H Winnie View has actually delivered 19mpg but then it has been a real challenge to get 8500 miles in a year with all the engine failures. Sometimes good mileage just is not the total picture.

My last rig, a 1989 27 foot Tioga on a Ford 360, got 8.1 (I check and log every tankful) until California started using that ****** MBTA (or whatever it was) and it dropped to 7.55.

My 1998 27 foot Lazy Daze, V-10, at the speed limit up to 70 MPH, no toad, used 8.56 for the first 100,000 miles, and then , because mileage seemed to improve, I now figure it from 100,000 miles on and it is now 8.68. Various brands yield more or less. I constantly get 9.5 at Mustang stations, when I can find them.

Hope this helps.

Hi Pat

Our '05 Jayco has settled in at about 8.5MPG but it is kind of difficult to determine for sure because we often dry camp between destinations and will run the generator during the evening for anywhere between an hour and 7 or 8 hours.

We almost always tow, and often use the dash air.

Hope this helps!

Working on my first full tank now. Started out with 5/8ths (approx) from dealer and filled up this weekend. If we had 5/8ths of 80 gallons or 50 gallons to start then we got about 8 with no toad.

Of course everyone had reason to know that diesel would get much cheaper than regular gas - the minute we decided to downsize and go from diesel to gas should have been the indicator to everyone what was coming in fuel prices.

Just got back home from a 5,000 mile run from the coast of Oregon to Dickson, TN and back. Towed my '99 Tracker the entire way. My ScanGauge says I averaged 8.6 for the entire trip. My '99 Jayco 29 ft Designer is, by scale, 350 lbs overweight. Those V-10's are hard on coils - had two replaced last January in Arizona and milage jumped from 7.2 to 8.6 after the work.
