I always have people asking me what kind of mileage I get when I stop to fill up. When I tell them they usually have a pained look on their face followed by some condescending head shaking. Now I just keep it simple and reply "I have no idea".

My view has always been if you're worried about gas mileage you should pack a sleeping bag and a cooler in a Prius and be done with it.

Had Ford V-10 in last RV. Class A, 34 foot, double slides. Towed GMC Sonoma crew cab and was happy with 6 mpg.
Downsized to class C, 26.5 ft and same Ford V-10. All other factors same and average 9 mpg.
I am a conservative driver and believe in the journey not the destination

The V10 in the Class A and the V10 in the Class C arent the same. Its the 3v vs 2v heads, along with some other minor differences.

Any hardware store should have them but Home Depot is where I got mine.

Cheers!

First thing I did was install splash guards to the shower. This was a good idea, no problem with water on the floor!

Or you can be Catty and say, "If you have to ask, you can't afford it."
OUCH!

Or you can tell them 6 gallons per mile and walk away! Walking into a gas station with two $100 bills every time took a little getting used to...
