No matter where your coming from, its all downhill to Florida so something going on with your numbers. I usually guestimate 6.5 mpg without a toad, 6.0 mpg with toad when calculating cost. Its close enough for me. I know sometimes I'll get over 7 mpg, and under 6 mpg when the wind/hills are taking a toll. I doubt I've ever gotten 4, so something it up. Either that V10 is super new and therefore needs some more time to be broken in or something else.

With 6K on the odo I just clocked 6.5 on a 400 mile trip. My average speed was between 65-70.

Just finished a round trip down I-65 from Huntsville AL to Pensacola, FL (790 miles) in our 2016 FR3 30DS towing a 2012 Jeep Liberty. I averaged just over 6 mpg going down with T/H mode ON, and about 7 mpg coming back home with T/H mode OFF. I don't thinks that's too bad, and would expect gas mileage to be even better without the toad.

I don't think so....My 200 miles there/200 back was in 100+ temps with the dash AC on full and the genset powering the single coach air (28ds). I read somewhere the genset burns 1 gallon per hour--but that may not be accurate. Barry

You can slow down to increase your mpg, 65 to 70 sounds like over 70 most of the times . You are pushing a big box down the road which isn't very aerodynamic
