We recently purchased a 2015 Leprechaun 319DS. Our first tank of gas, with a fair amount of mountain driving, and enough wind to rip a hole in my brand new door (more about that later) yielded 9.5mg. No toad. No generator use. 60 mph. The next, but much less representative sample, was totally driving around town, about 120 miles, one hour of generator use, 8.6 mpg. I'm pretty sure that on a fairly level road without a bunch of wind, we will be looking at 10 mpg.

UPDATE 11/7/2015: Just returned from our 2nd trip this year. We drove up Hwy 1 through Big Sur, and on to Santa Cruz (Felton), and then home via the 101. 350 miles total. We towed the toad and used the generator for probably a total of 4 hours. We got 10 MPG!!! We were very happy with that. Maybe we just needed to "break it in".

I read somewhere, not to look at mileage until the engine has 3000 miles on it.

I think if they ever start reducing the amount of ethanol in the fuel -- we all might get a tic up in the mpg....at least that is a dream. Not to mention the boat would really appreciate it.

My boat requires hi octane. So for now, at least, I don't have to worry about the ethanol with it. However, I hear that they are planning to put it in super also in the future.

Ethanol Free Gas, yes they still make it. Not as easy to find as it once was. I use it in all of my small engines, they HATE ethanol.

My first class c with the ford v-10 engine 1997 i average about 8-9 mpg and a little less when towing a sidekick. The best mileage I ever had was in NM on a secondary road running about 50-55 without a toad, it was about 11.5
