FR3 Mileage

So...considering buying an FR3 as an upgrade from my 3100 Sunseeker. I am considering lots of variables. One is fuel efficiency...so, what type of gas mileage is typical? Thanks.

I think if you averaged 7-8 mpg you'd be doing good.

I've been getting 6-7 towing the racecar. Around 22k combined. With the car on a dolly 7-8 is more likely, both at 65.

The 300 mile trip from the dealer back home my 2015 30DS got 7.9 hwy MPG with the cruise control set on 65. That was across Indiana and central KY mostly flat terrain.

For our first tank on our trip from Phoenix to Colorado Springs we took it easy and got 9 mpg. But we were running late after the next fill and we don't know the mpgs yet, but it won't be that good.

Fuel economy depends on a lot of factors... Such as how heavy is your foot... Wind conditions... Are you towing something.., how loaded up are you?

These are just examples of questions that affect fuel economy..,.

Generally I am confident in giving an range of 8-10 mpg

It cost me $100.00 every time I stop at the gas station, no matter how I drive or what I am towing nothing ever changes.
