Sprinter 2500 4 cylinder/7-speed highroof. My daily commute in a mix of freeway and heavy stop-and-go traffic seems to be a sweet spot for mileage as I seem to get peak mileage here. It's 15 miles one-way in the morning and 19-miles going home (different routes due to traffic) and I always get between 28 and 29 MPG.





I have never gotten higher than that so those are ideal conditions. Lowest mileage I have ever seen was 22 MPG, and that's what you can expect to get driving at 75MPH due to the wind resistance at higher speeds. (I also have solar and roof vents on the roof.) Average is 24-26 MPG in mixed city/highway.

My last three fill ups in in Minnesota that I guess is B-10 biodiesel I had 18.25 mpg. I don't follow the readout on the dash but calculate it by gallons divided by miles. The dash readout is a variable to how you drive like coming out of a mountain will give you fantastic readouts.That dash readout overall is going to be at least a half gallon average low. If the final reading on the dash is about 17.7 mpg it will calculate out at around 18.2. More accurately I would take all fill ups add them together for a trip and divide by miles driven. That accounts for every driving condition encountered. I've had a consistent summer of Minnesota biodiesel and wanted to know if it was a hit on mpg.

I just returned from a 4,966 mile round trip on Winnebago Outdoor Caravan to Canada and kept gas reports for the whole trip.* My average mileage was 13.64 mpg and driving between 55-65 mph, wind behind me and in front of me at about 20mph during the trip.* I was also using the tow mode towing my Smart Car.* Gas price was a low of 1.999/gallon to a high of $4.165/gallon (in Canada).

What year, make and model was your old B?
