Default Gas Mileage? What are you really getting for MPG?



Please state the year, type of driving (highway, city or country) and your MPG.



I think it would be great to have some real numbers from Rialta owners.



Thanks!



My 1996 gets 16 MPG country/city driving and 20 mpg on the highway. I travel at 70 MPH on the highway usually. This puts the Tachometer at 4000 rpms.

1995 5 cyl 2.5L in Somerset England. On motorways about 24mpg but more on cruise on long runs without having to accelerate and slow down all the time. say 26mpg.
In town a lot less but no figures.

I have a 2005 Rialta QD. Between charleston SC and Milw. Wi. ( I do this a lot) I have mountains,


flat areas, hot/cold, hills and dales. I'll always average between 18.5 and 20 MPG. Now, I don't


drive fast. 65-70, try to stay in that range. At 70 all day, I'll get 18- 18.5. At 65 all day,


I'll get my 20MPG. Hopes this helps.

2003 model 22HD we just did a rocky mountain trip from tucson and back 3 people extra weight somewhat did 65 - 75 and some city driving we got anywhere between 17.5 - 19.5 mpg that included some generator use while still in desert
we were pleased

has anybody noticed a big difference with tire size?
we are thinking of putting the bigger tire upfront too just to make the rotation easier

1999 Rialta HD. I drive between Casa Grande, AZ and San Diego on the I-8. The speed limit is 75 mph until Yuma, AZ and once in California it goes to 70 mph for the most part. The mountains are steep and a bit daunting but my rig climbs it pretty well. That stretch gets me around 17-18 mpg. From San Diego to Los Angeles and back I got over 19 mpg travelling at 65 mph. Next trip I will slow down and see what happens. I have gotten 21 mpg before. No need to race to a fire at all times. The Rialta is the quietest and most solid rig I have owned or driven. It handled those mountain curves like a sports car. On a side note here; when I picked up my Rialta in 2010 (used) from Florida, the trip back to AZ went great until the last 10 miles. A crazy man in an old pickup came out of the Rest Area and started coming upon vehicles trying to hit them. This was at 75 mph. I carefully passed him but then he came after me. I figured it would be o.k. so I had the Rialta exceeding 100 mph in the desert (no problem) and got away. It was either fight or flight. The Rialta flew! I don't recommend EVER taking it that fast, but it handled like a sports car. We called 911 to turn the sniper in.

I'm about to buy a 1995, thanks for the info. I'm curious as to what your average motorway/highway speeds were at this mpg? Thanks! - Bryan
