Average miles per gallon with Ford V-10

This information is not provided by Ford or any other manufacture and so it is up to us to get a general answer. Of course, it would be nice if you can give your experience "with" or "without" towing a toad Your answers will also vary depending if you are in the mountains or mostly flat area but I think there can be a "general" number which may be helpful. Thanks

Keep in mind the tow makes a difference. My light Mazda pickup cost me about 1/2 mile per gallon. My son-in-law talked into towing his CJ5 on a trip. That piece of lead tanked my mileage.

eagle-

Current 31-foot Class A 8 mpg towing a 3,000 pound car
- Low 7.5, high 9
- 362 HP 3-valve V-10 with 5-speed transmission

Former 27-foot Class C 8.5 mpg towing a 3,000 pound car
- 265 (?) HP 2-valve V-10 with Banks Power Pack and 4-speed transmission

In both cases, average over-the-road speed 62 mph, 2400 rpm seems to produce the most comfortable cruising.

Been to the Canadian and Mexican borders, east and west coasts, 32,000 miles, w/o towing, is 8 mpg average. We drive mostly on state highways at the speed limit, but will sometimes cruise Interstates at 63 mph.

Btw, our speedometer is slow by about 1 mph at 60.

1999 30 ft Class C, towing a Kia Soul.

7.6 MPG per Scanguage II.

I don't believe it, but just buy gas when at 1/4 tank.

Since I'm on vacation and either pulling a trailer of driving an RV I don't even concern myself with mileage. When I get close to 1/4 tank I fill up. The mileage won't improve either way. If I really wanted to improve my mileage I would sell my 2 RV's and buy a Nissan Leaf, all electric, boy that would be a lot of fun!

Our former 98' 22ft. Class C w/ V10. Most consistent MPG average was 10.5 if we held it back to 55 MPH we could do better then that, no toad.
