Re: motor home gas mileage R. D. Burger 10-30-10  
I hear all kinds of gas mileage on gas motorhome from 6 to 14 plus. I found that most do not want to tell what they are actually getting because it is not good. Can someone give me a straight and realistic figure for a ford v10 in a 34 ft Itasca.
Re: motor home gas mileage bill franz 10-27-10  
I have a 1987 vixen td that gets 30 mpg, it is garageable, has tilt roof. It is the most aerodynamic motorhome ever built. We love it.
Re: motor home gas mileage Tony Hernandez 11-1-10  
OK we all know we get crappy mileage. Now what upgrades can we do to improve the mileage? I'm thinking Intake manifold, electric fans, new Carb and better air filter with some kind of force cold air plumbing. I got a 1985 Rockwood with a newer 454 crate motor all ways pulling a trailer full of quads and dirt bikes. I have hooker headers and dual flowmaster exhaust already I'm at 5-6 miles per gallon.
Re: motor home gas mileage Geo 12-5-10  
I have a 87'Winnebago Chieftain 22' with 56000 miles & 454 Chevy engine--it gets 8.5 mpg overall. $2000 in improving upgrades:6 new tires,all new shocks,new wiring & belts with full tuneup--brakes are good(I was told as I was going to have them replaced as well)--total-fixup. Exterior lights revamped $260 -- New refrigeration coils or guts:$850. Most recently $536 for AC converted to new systems. (Needed to replace some parts).
Will put on Craig's list in future--Kimberling City,MO--probably $6950 OBO.
Re: motor home gas mileage Pete R 12-7-10  
WOW! I was thinking about selling my 1976 GMC Vandura style RV back to the auto company that had rebuilt it so I could buy a bigger RV for half what they are willing to pay to get this one back, but after reading over a few different sites on such style RV's as what I was looking into, I believe I'll stick with my little old trusty GMC. Originally it had the GM 350 CID follwed by the TH-350 auto trans, that has all been replaced with a small block 400 bored 0.30" over and a set of 202 double hump heads installed, a TH-700R was rebuilt and attached to that, after the gear ratio was changed a little this old beast can pull any hill fully loaded here in Western Pa. at posted speed limit or above without going over 2.5 on the tach and just town/rural driving I get between 10 & 12 mpg. GEE! Can't wait to see what it's really like after I give it the much over due oil change, tune up, and carb rebuild. Thining I might just keep this old crate and add a good header fed exhaust system so it will breath out the butt a little better too. I think my large dog and myself can deal with the smaller area with the price of gas the way it is these days, those other people can keep their bigger gas hog. lol Happy RVing folks!

Re: motor home gas mileage jd 12-28-05  
What year, coach type and size?
Five is low, unless it has a MotorCraft/Holley carburetor and the power valve is blown out by backfiring.
We have the MC/H on an '83 C Coach and get 7-8 running about 60 MPH. Go faster and you'll get less. We have the old fashioned York A/C compressor, and it robs us of about 1MPG.
Let us know what you have.
God Bless, jd
Re: motor home gas mileage Walt 12-29-05  
My two cents: I have an '86 that is 11,300 lbs. that has a carbureted 460. It gets about 7 to 8 mpg. pulling a boat that must weigh 3000 lbs including trailer, and that's at 55 mph maximum.

Re: motor home gas mileage Brendan Nother 11-17-09  
I have a 1990 c class gm 454 23'.It gets 8 mpg towing a heavy trailer and the same not towing anything.Do you think I could change the rear end gears or put a larger set of tires on the rear would that help?I don't plan on towing a heavy trailer any more and I don't mind having to "pedal" it up the large hills. Thanks
Re: motor home gas mileage Dick Reed 11-25-09  
I have a 1995 30' Class C w/460. I get around 8mpg. It does best using 87 octane, both performance and fuel economy. We got about 6.8 mpg going across Minnesota into a headwind and only running about 55 mph. I have gotten over 9 mpg running at 55 mph on flat land with no wind. I normally drive between 65 and 72 mph on fairly hilly terrain and average right at 8 mpg.

Re: motor home gas mileage Mike Z 12-22-10  
I owned a 71 Dodge 32 ft class A with a 413 gas engine and got 6-7 mpg pulling a 3000 lb trailer. My 85 F-250 460 gas with a 3000 lb camper pulling a 6000 lb trailer got 5.5 mpg. Also had a 91 dodge cummins 3/4 ton w/ camper, 16,000 GW 10 mpg and a 1999 F-350 7.3 diesel w/camper 18,000 GW and got 8.5 - 10 mpg. My current RV is a 38ft Monoco Diplomat with a 315 cummins weighting 33,000 lbs pulling a 6000 lb trailer gets between 6.6 mpg to 8.4 mpg.
Re: motor home gas mileage Jim 9-29-09  
I have a '97 Dolphin, 36' with the Ford V8, 460, and I get around 6 mpg. My previous coach was a '99 Tropi-Cal, 36' with the Ford V10 and a Banks system, and it consistently got 8 mpg. From the many people I've talked to, it seems that these mpg figures are pretty much average for these engines.

Re: motor home gas mileage Jack 1-6-12  
I have F-350 V-10 with Lance camper. MPG fully loaded is consistently 9. Just truck, unloaded, consistently 10-11. My opinion is that gas is a better choice unless you have extraordinary heavy pulling needs. The V-10 is very reliable and has plenty of power. You can't get them on 350's and below after 2010, though.
Re: motor home gas mileage Alan 1-29-12  
What sort of miles per gallon would we get on a 1987 Fleetwood motorhome with a 454 petrol Chev automatic 28ft. Would it be worth converting to LPG dual fuel.
Re: motor home gas mileage Myron 2-5-12  
I own a 1999 37’ Allegro Bus with a Ford V10 motor and was getting around 6.5 miles to the gallon, and could hardly climb a steep hill in second gear. I modified the motor with a “Paxton Supercharger” with “JBA Headers”. I run about 3Lbs boost at 2,600 RPM’s in high gear and the Trans remain in high gear climbing most hills at around 60+ miles an Hour, without the trans down shifting into third gear. I have been getting a little over 10 miles to the gallon a very big improvement in fuel cost and power, power went from 265 H.P. to 450 H.P. with around 550+ foot lbs of torque. So if you would like to get up a hill and keep up with the Diesel pushers this is the way to go.

Air con.problem DON DAVEY 1-2-12  
Hi, the air con in my 1985 rockwood R.V has stopped working, i have found under the dash 4 tiny plastic pipes which should be attached to the in dash unit which has 6 push pull controls.

I have removed the in dash control unit
which has 7 nozzles at the rear which the pipes should be attached to, which 4 nozzles should i attach them to ? the plastic pipes are black,blue,white,and pink in colour,whilst the black one has suction when the motor is running.

Re: V10 air intake problem jo 10-15-11  
We have a problem with the air intake sucking up water while driving during a rain storm. Does anyone have any answers to this problem, or has anyone had this problem? Thank you
Re: motor home gas mileage John C. 11-13-11  
I own a 1993 Fleetwood Southwind motorhome. It is 33ft with a 454 engine. I fabricated a ram air system for the air intake with a K+N air filter,wrapped the entire air filter assy with insulation to keep intake air temp as low as possible,installed a throttle body spacer, put a set of Hedman headers on it, installed a transmission deep sump pan and B+M trans super cooler, installed Bosch platinum#2 spark plugs with 8.5mm plug wires and use Amsoil synthetic oil and transmission fluid along with Amsoil differential fluid. I sometimes tow two wheels down a Mini Cooper on a dolly. When I tow the Mini I get 10 mpg. When not towing the Mini I get 13mpg on 87 octane. I also add Lucas upper cylinder lubricant to the fuel whenever I fill the gas tank.Before I made all of these mods I was getting 8-9 mpg not towing the Mini. Using the Amsoil I also noticed a drop in engine operating temp by approx 5-10 degrees F. All it takes to improve your milage is a little common sense and some money. I'm a firm believer in Amsoil synthetic motor oil. I think one of the biggest improvements one could make to their motorhome engine is to make or purchase a cold air intake with ram air to the carb or throttle body. Dont forget to insulate the air filter housing to keep the unit protected from the heat from the engine. It will make a tremendous difference in performance and fuel economy. Dont forget the Amsoil either. No, I AM NOT an Amsoil dealer.I just really believe in the stuff. Remember lower operating temperature translates into less friction which means less wear on moving parts plus you have longer drain intervals, up to 25,000 miles or one year which ever comes first. I even use it in my Onan genset. Hope this helps someone out there. Thanks for letting me share my experience here. John

And if so, how much?

Re: motor home gas mileage Myron 10-15-11  
I have a 1999 36’ Allegro Bus with a Ford V10. I was getting around 5 to 5 1/2 miles per gallon. I put a Paxton Supercharger on it and the 265 H.P. motor now is pushing 425 H.P. with 525 foot pounds of torque at 6 lbs boost. The engine develops additional 85 foot lbs of torque at 3,000 RPM’s. I pull steep upgrades at 65 miles per hour in third gear. My gas mileage now is 7.5 to 8 miles per gallon. So if you want real power supercharge the motor and you will stay with the diesel pushers.
Re: motor home gas mileage Mike 2-8-12  
Rick,

5MPG is not good for your RV.
1st. Change spark plugs & Air Filter
2nd. Make sure your air intake in getting cool air instead of hot under hood air.
3rd. I would look for a performance chip for that engine.
4th. Headers will also help.

With these items done, you should easily double your mileage to about 10-12mpg.
Re: motor home gas mileage joseph moses 8-12-11  
I own a 2007 Ford F150 FX4 with the 5.4 triton my trailer is a 20'Damon that is 3200 pounds empty.We travel very light and only leave about 10 gallons of fresh water for the toilet. Considering everything if I had of known I would get 7-10 MPG at 55 miles an hour for us canadians thats 90 KPH. I would have never!bought these two but would have saved a pile of money and gotten at the very least better fuel MPG! We traveled to Northern Ontario where the roads are hilly but nowhere near the Rockies or Eastern Canada. It was no cheaper to run down the road and it didn't compare to the creature comforts of a A,B or C class. All said and done you have a pick-up to drive when your not trailering and thats worth something,but when retired you could get away with an older fire wood hauler or mulch,well you get my point. There must be a ton of class A because most folks think OMG there so hard on fuel,when in reality try and tow a trailer that weighs more then 3000 lbs and I'm sure you might think twice I know I am,

Face it! RVing is a life style, not necessarily a cheap way to travel! RVing is great. You meet more nice people, see lots more of nature, etc with this type travel. Ya just gotta suck it up and go. If you can afford a RV, then you should be able to afford the fuel. Go RVing...........

Re: motor home gas mileage gideon turner 2-21-11  
2003 Tioga 24D, V10, solo: 10-13 mpg. towing a Honda CR V: 8-9 mpg. I'm considering installing a Banks system to help increase the MPG. Probably the biggest factor in fuel economy is speed. Driving at Highway speed of 65-70 mph my mpg is 5-6, driving at 55 mph equates to the best mpg.
Re: motor home gas mileage John 8-22-11  
2005 6.0L Ford turbo diesel in a 26ft Class C motorhome got us 11-12 mpg driving 60-70mpg with full water tank, some big hills, etc. Noisy, but tons of power for hills, passing, etc. Drive 500 miles on a single tank.

Re: motor home gas mileage Mark 9-13-11  
I own a 1995 Winnebago Itaska Sunrise 31 RQ, Chevy 454 fuel injected gas engine. I do MPG calculations at every gas stop, 99% of my driving is on Interstate hiways. I have never gotten less than 10 MPG and sometimes it approches 11 MPG. I do not use cruise control on anything other than totaly flat hiways, on hilly grades I let the speed drop to keep the engine at 2k or less RPM. I drive the posted speed limit except on upward grades, but never less than 50 MPH. I DO NOT let this engine over rev on steep grades, I move to slow lane and keep pace with the trucks.

Re: motor home gas mileage Mike 8-17-06  
I am having the exact same problem with my 1989 F-350 w/ a fuel injected 460. I am getting about 6 MPG and that is with a brand new cat back system, K&N filter and complete tune up. My rig is a F-350 dually with a 12 foot camper shell on top. I still think that there must be a mechanical reason why the mileage is so low. Any suggestions??

8 to 10 miles per gal is all you are
going to get no matter what you buy
gas or diesel.RVs are set up pull not
to do good on gas or diesel.I have a
V10 ford 32'Motor home.If you are looking for something that is easy on fuel do not buy a motor home.But if you
want drive a house around with every
thing thats in your home plus your
car, myself i think its great.
