Fuel Mileage while towing

Just paid $2.69 a gallon at Chevron this morning in Corona CA but at Costco it was just $2.01. I get about 10-12 mph when towing. Wish I was out camping as the weather has been beautiful with temps in the mid-upper 80s.

Great choice for "Living within my means" and camping for one...

He might be exaggerating somewhat...
Class Cs all have 2V motors. The FR3 (and every other Class A) has the 3V motor. They aren't the same, and the 2V has traditionally been better regarded in fuel economy. Class C physics plays a part in that too, for sure.

Towing the race trailer or CX-5 on the dolly, I'm usually at 6.5-7, and I don't dally on the interstate.

Boy, you sure are lucky !!!
The traffic would be better if there weren't so many tourists coming here. California is such an awful place, apparently, you would think they would all stay home, or go to someplace cheaper, and not so scary.

Nearest gas to me is $1.99 this morning. Count me among the lucky ones!
