I'm amazed that mileage on a 24 foot class c gasser is basically the same as much bigger and heavier rigs. Also, except for the sprinter chassis, class C's that are brand new still fare no better than 10 mpg for the most part. My 2001 454 class c rig weighs 11,000 fully loaded and still only does 10 mph on an average day. Brand new V10s and chevys fare no better. I like the smaller rig for where I can get into, but sure wish that they got 14 mpg vs 10 mpg for a big rig. . Goes to show that these engines are efficient in weight per mile, but there is a cost of entry regardless of weight for the most part.

My '85 Dodge D250 w/318 only gets 12.75 mpg, towing or not. I can see a Class C only getting the same.

So in 1985, 12 mpg or so, and now 25 years or more later and only 10 mpg or so....something basically wrong with that. You would think logically back in 1985 that in 25 years the gas mileage would be significantly better, but it is not:.(

Keep in mind that length, weight have increased and slideouts have been added.

In my case, no slide outs, so lighter weight. True for many others. Hmm...

Gas pump cheats

Maybe my mileage is not as bad as a thought. I am seeing in the news, where a significant number of gas stations are cheating. A lot of pumps are favoring the merchant at around 10%. In other words, I may see a reading on the pump and pay for 30 gallons, but only receive 27. This means my 9 mpg may actually be 10 mpg.

Not if the state has anything to say about it.. The Weights and Measures sticker should be on there and current for the year, if not, call and say so..

About 10 miles/gallon, Triple E on Ford Chassis with V10.

(That's 1 liter every 5 to 6 kilometers)

Thanks folks,

I got any where from 8.5 to 11.1 on my last trip of about 600 miles. I had installed an Auto-Chip Power Box. First one didn't work, but they quickly replaced it with another one.
