We have a 2008 Jayco 31SS and made our first trip... we got 10.1MPG with no toad, about half local roads with hills and half interstate... but kept the speed at 60MPH max on the interstate... ran great and the Tow/Haul did a good job on grades...

We did a short trip to the NE corner of Bear Lake,ID., Average speed 65mph, 295 mile round trip, took 21 gallons of 87oct. to fill up, figure thats 11.8 mpg, still breaking 'er in, no toad. Very impressed with the power and speed I was able to maintain climbing out of there up a 7% grade, as well as the tow/haul feature helped by needing minimal brakeing when we came down the same grade. Very nice, indeed.
Sorry about that,I have the '07 chassis.

Well after having this ASpect with the E450 for a year now.

This is the first time I drove from KY/TN border with it in Tow/Haul all the way.

With my Scangauge I see in "Real Time Values" I was getting better MPG readings 11/12 most of the time. Final Average was only 10 MPG. Running 60 MPH with a toad. When I make the same trip not useing TH. I was getting single digit MPG readings on the flats and going up hill. (can not count going down hill)This was on I-24 and I-40. So will have to test a little more by running in TH more.

2007 BT Cruiser Model 5291 just turned 4000 miles. Calculated a running average over the last 790 miles was 11.58 mpg. It's pretty flat here in Indiana and I keep it under 65 mph.

We just purchased a 2009 Jayco 30GS greyhawk class 'c' on a 2008 Ford E450 chassis and we are getting approx. 6.5 to 7.0 mpg. Now mind you it only has 1200 miles on it at moment, so its probably to early to be accurate. Hope fully it will improve as the miles increase.

Our 2008 E450 V10 32' Sunseeker is getting 8 mpg at 55-60 pulling the Chevy Colorado Toad. Without the toad is seems to be so close to the 8 that I see no difference.
Happy Trails to you and yours

We have an '08 Jayco Melbourne 29D and got 9.7 mpg towing a Saturn from Arkansas to the Southwest and return, some 3400 miles. We got less going west, and better coming east because of tailwinds, and seemed to get better mileage at 60 mph rather than 55 or 65. I measured mpg every fill up. Go figure.

We just took our first trip to Boston Ma. from NW Florida in a new 2010 32Ft. Freelander with the E450 and averaged 8mpg. We were not towing and were clipping along with traffic.

Swanee, we got the same MPG with our BigFoot 29sl (base is the 04 E450 V10) towing our 07 Jeep Wrangler 4 door.

worst mileage was 3.5 mpg, max load (20k lbs between RV and Toad) with lots of hills (not mountains) and fairly high speeds (75mph just at speed limit) coming out of Colorado into Nebraska.

In the mountains of Colorado, speeds are much slower, so we ended up around 6 mpg top, and 5 mpg in the hills (no toad, but pretty loaded up, wintertime)

Here in New England, our last trip got me 7 mpg.
