LandYacht35diesel,

Congratulations.

In my E-450 (gas) I get about 12.5 mpg if I drive at 48 mph. If I drive 50 mph that drops to 10 mpg.

I drive it like I stole it with our 40' 5.9 Cummins, hit 75 and 78mph and got 9.3 mpg pushing a small house down the road. My 5.4 Ford pick up gets 13 mpg driving it the same way, tho it lacks a bathroom, kitchen, queen bed, water heater, 90 gallons of water, a furnace, couple of tv's and a fully stocked refrigerator and bar.
It's all about perspective and what you're willing to put up with and or settle with. We're all different, and it's ok! Get out and enjoy yourself!

I get 9.25 to 9.50 with my 8.3 Cummins towing a Featherlite trailer with a car on it driving 65--70 MPH. That was averaged over a 1500mi round trip mostly on I-95

Actually, I wouldn't know, whether car, truck, or when RVing, just never felt the need to track mpg. All our vehicles including motorhome have mpg tracking feature along with the couple of scangauge 2 modules mounted in our HD truck and class A. While I monitor other pertinent powertrain parameters, unless I see a significant change in fuel demand it is rare indeed for me to consider mpg, just pull up to the pump and open my wallet. Driving habits are typical, when RVing I stay within 5mph of posted speed limit, with daily driving I roll at 5 mph above speed limit.

Had a person approach me at a gas station while I was fueling up our previous MH and asked me what kind of mileage I got. I said, "It gets great mileage for an apartment."

I have never tracked fuel mileage because it's a moot point. I consider it part of the cost of Rvv'ing. I fill up when I need fuel.
