Mileage

Just came back from a 4000 mile trip . Averaged 12.2 mpg on my 24 ft Sunseeker with a Sprinter chassis. Thought I would get higher . What are others getting on their Sprinters.

That sounds about right to me. Some folks seem to get higher mileage, but a lot depends on how and where you drive. Driving 55 on flat roads with a tailwind will get you pretty high mileage. Driving 75 on interstates in the mountains won't.

Once rolling air resistance if the prime factor and it's exponential. It's twice as much at 70mph than it was at 50. Slow down.

Just completed a trip to Leavenworth Wa from Bend OR and kept it at 60-60. Fairly light load and no toad. Got 14.

Over about 8600 miles, we've averaged 14.8 mpg with about 80% of that towing the Sonic on a dolly. Not towing, we average about 16mpg. The lowest we've seen is 12.6 and the highest 17.1. I drive 60-62.

My 2016 Prism 2150 LE with about 20,000 miles average is 15.4 MPG. Trip driving averages vary between 14 to 17 MPG affected by terrain, conditions, and foot weight. Driving into a headwind seems worse than mountain driving, with open-highway flatland's producing the best MPG. I am generally light-footed, staying in the 55 to 60 MPH range, often using cruise control. I manually calculate mileage between fill-ups, don't know my loaded weight, and don't tow.

Are you towing anything?

Averaging mid 13s on my 2017 Prism 2150LE. 11,000 miles and counting this year. Very little light towing. Mostly highway, running cruise control at 64.

It gets low 14s consistently during the wife's shifts. She runs 65+ without cruise.
