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

Around 20 smiles per gallon. Any day away from the city and job is worth any crappy fuel mileage.

MPG

No one will believe this, but we have a 2014 GeorgetownXL 360 gasser and 38' long. Our toad is a Saturn Ion. I have found the sweet spot to be 59 to 61 mph. This has made our MPG leap and we get about 12-14 MPG's on the road. However, everyone on the road hates me even fellow RVers, but I just keep chugging along at 60 mph.

I have yet to regret the MBS 2400W with my 17ft Lund, getting between 12/16mpg @ 65mph depending on the wind speed and direction.

MPG

We're pulling a Coachmen Freedom 276, about 7300#, with a F-150 Supercab 5.0 litre V8 on T/H and consistently get between 9 and 11.5 MPG. The variable is always whether we have a headwind or a tailwind. We almost always cruise at about 65 MPH.
