Default Post your MPG

Not sure where to post this...

But we just drove our brand-new P-W Plateau TX (diesel) 500 miles and got 21 mpg. Quite a difference from the 10 mpg we were getting with our old B+.

I moved your post to a new topic - could be interesting.

------------------------------------------------------------------

That's great. I had a B+ (and a C) ....... I know the feeling.
17.2 mpg (U.S.) for my last tank. Diesel as well - '97 GMC 6.5L. Under 70 mph for the last two trips.

I noted the "(U.S.)" in your fuel economy. We should all try to post whether our gas mileage is
in US or Imperial gallons, as there is a measurable difference. Or, if everyone just added their
location to their Class B Forum profile (don't need addresses, just a general location like mine,
or even just Canada or USA or UK, etc.) we could probably figure it out intuitively?
Or we could do that confusing "litres/100 kilometres" nonsense that Stats Can uses.

I like the mpCg you use Mike.

Approx. 72% of visitors to this forum are from the US. 25% are from Canada. The UK and Australia are next.

L/100KM and KM/Liter don't mean much to me.

My last tank:
L/100KM: 13.7
KM/Liter: 7.3
MPG (Imperial): 20.6
MPG (US): 17.2

Agree about the L/100KM. I sometimes (when really bored) do a quick conversion to mpCg,
dividing the litres by 4.5 and round the 100km to 60 miles, in my head.
Hardly scientific, but it works.

We just got back from a relatively short trip in our Roadtrek C190P, 07, 6.0 litre. Big time winds at 30-40 mph. Headwind/20* crosswind going out and got 14.2mpg at 57 mph. Coming back tailwind/20* crosswind and got 20.0 at 57mph.

I just fueled up my 2011 PW Plateau Diesel Sprinter and according to my Gas Cubby App I only got 16.5 MPG for the last tank. Lower than I expected. I hadn't done a lot of highway driving during that tank and there were a lot of hills. My RV only has 4200 miles on it - is it still in it's "break in" phase?

This is only the 5th full tank of fuel I've put in and I don't have accurate data for some of the other fill ups...

Things like head/tail winds (noted in Booster's mileage post), hilly terrain, driving habits like cruising
speed and acceleration, tire inflation, weather conditions, altitude, and so on, all affect your mileage.
You'll get the best gas mileage when your vehicle is set up perfectly, driving at around 60 mph on
cruise control, on a flat freeway, with no wind or rain, at sea level (I'm joking).
If these fantasy driving conditions don't always happen when you travel, you'll get something less than
the maximum rated mpg for your vehicle.
I'd think your mileage seems pretty decent for that year/make/model.
See if it improves dramatically when you go on a longer freeway trip.

I agree, but our Chevy gets the very best mileage at 45ish mph Not a good way to make friends on the highways, but it will be close to 19mpg, if you can turn out the honking!
