Never underestimate wind...truer words never spoken. I flew in f-4 phantoms and f-16 falcons in the 70's and 80's. However this PIG (lovingly) if you know aircraft lingo, will never get 10mpg at highway speeds (over 55mph) So I think that the reps who sell it should quit touting it as such and suck it up and tell us the truth. I knew from the second tank of gas that I was going to get 7-9 mpg as a rule. I also know from listening here that most people agree to that idea and are willing to accept as penance for their and my willingness to suck it up and have fun camping despite misrepresentation of actual fuel consumption. So , basically , if you don't have gas money don't buy a large motored class C
