Can you believe a WH 8.1 @ 1200+ mpg

This is just tounge-in-cheek:
hope the pic comes thru, 1210.41 mpg on 36' 8.1 workhorse. I had not noticed this before, just took some pix of the bad display this spring when the IP went to hell. my wallet didnot see it either

Nope, I wouldn't believe the mpg, but I sure would believe that your coach is equipped with an instrument cluster from Actia.

Not remarkable when we consider the effects of "Zero G."

The average MPG display "Resets" every fifty miles or so, when it does this it can give some real strange readings. Then it settles down after a couple of miles and is far more accurate

NOT!!! When the tach shows something like 625RPM and the speedo is somewhere near 0 MPH (Flash prevents proper analysis of actual speed).

It appears you were in that sweet spot where your rig starts to make gas rather than use it. It is a phenomenon that many rvers persue but only a very few attain!
