I have had 2 Class Cs, both with the V-10. The best mileage I ever recorded was about 10.5 to almost 11 mpg, but I was on a 2 lane road going about 50. My new 3051 I am getting about 8.5 going 65. The only way that I know to increase mpg is just to keep it about 60, but that is hard to do on the Interstates.

Dragging a parachute. Thats how I've heard the drag from the square tail on a RV described. Same article said the extra weight of a reasonably sized Toad is offset by the reduced drag because the Toad breaks the parachute. Dunno if it's true.

I tow a open car trailer/with Falcon every where and depending on speed, weather, traffic and terrain will average between 7.5 and 9.5. Cold air intake and Banks controller for trans shifting.
