2013 Georgetown MPG

I am new to this game, and would appreciate any experienced guys telling me about what kind of MPG they are getting on a 2013 Georgetown 378 gas model.

Thanks

OJ

If you were to ask our salesman he'd say 14. The truth is that in actuality it will 1/2 of that +/- 1 or 2

Thanks, I was told by my salesperson 10-11. Have not been able to get a good reading after 1800 miles, as we live in a very hilly area.

I get the following in my 2013 350xl
Towing 26ft boat = 7.5 MPG
Towing 3,800 lb car = 8.2 MPG
Nothing in tow = 8.8 MPG
I travel between 58 and 63 MPH depending on wind and road conditions.

2012 378TS = 37ft , 22,000 lbs
Towing car = 7.5 MPG
Nothing in tow = highest I ever got was 8.8 MPG. That was really a good day. May have had a tail wind.
I try and stay between 2,000 =2,200 rpms (58-62 mph) for best mpg
Climbing big hill I probably get 6.5 to 7 mpg

I have a 2005 36 footer. I don't get as good MPG as the guys with the newer units, about 6.8 to 7.2 but I almost always tow. I also . have the 19.5" wheels which may make a difference Vs the 22"

The secret is the speed and wind. I crossed IN one day with no tow and a head wind at 5.5 MPG. Keep the speed between 55 and 65 and you will get the best.

OJ,

We bought one of these: ScanGauge - Trip Computer + Digitial Gauges + ScanTools and will be trying it out tomorrow.

I'm surprised no one gave you the "you don't buy an expensive big rig and worry about MPGs" speech. When I asked the same question someone couldn't resist to poke at me. LOL

Thanks for comments. As I mentioned, new, and apparently bought the BS story that it gets 10 MPG. Interesting to hear all the comments, and they are appreciated.

With our 2010 Georgetown 330TS, 19.5" wheels, towing our 3500lb car from Ontario to Largo Florida last month.........7.8mpg.

Cruise was locked at 60mph....very few hills on our route.

That's as good as it gets!
