Ernest, I must be doing something wrong, the best I've ever gotten was 10.5 and that was on really flat black top

My "sweet spot" is 58-62 MPH..... As long as I keep it there, my mpg remains pretty consistent .... I have other. Class A's blow my doors off but you know what - I'm just not in that big of a hurry.... I bought this thing so wife and I could see the country and we just aren't in that big of a hurry to get anywhere.....

About the same as everyone else on here. Last trip was 9.8 mpg during 380 mountain miles towing a Silverado crew cab. Engine is the 360.

When I'm in the mountains or hill country I get below 10 also. I usually travel on flat ground on the south coast. And I am also like Ernest, I drive 65 or below. I have 14 days off every 2 weeks and I am in no hurry.

It's just parked until after the winter. We got it late in the year to study and learn it and first sign of good weather, there will be an empty parking spot next to the garage

Well all the responses make me feel good. Before purchasing the Berk, we had an F350 dually, towing a Jayco Seismic (44 ft) and would only get between 8 and 8.5MPG.

No pun intended, but I am one happy camper ! (doesn't take much, does it?)

Thanks to all for the kindness of a reply !

When we left MI this fall I filled up and reset the MPG. I ran 63 all the way to Nashville and got 10.8. We took the Natchez Trace Trail from Nashville to Natchez 465 miles speed limit was 45 -50 and I ran more 45 than anything. We spent two nights on the Trace so not in a hurry. My MPG was 9. I did reset when we started the Trace. I am only going by the computer. I have never checked MPG by miles and gallons. I'm not sure how accurate it can be it seems like I can but a lot of diesel in the tank after the auto shut off clicks. The amount from fill up to fill up could very by several gallons depending on how big of hurry you are in.
