Gas mileage

I just purchased a 2022 quantum lc22 and wondered what mpg you have gotten? Thanks!

I have a Hurricane and never checked the MPGs. It doesn't come into play with 80 gallons of fuel.

I have a 55 gallon gas tank. I was just going for a ballpark figure. Thanks!

If you have a motorhome with the legacy Ford V-10 or the newer Ford V-8... or any diesel on a 30 foot or larger chassis, it's going to average 10 mpg or lower... probably lower.

If you buy a motorhome in that class and expect anything better, you're only kidding yourself.

Most people learn to stop focusing on trying to improve fuel mileage and instead just realistically budget for it. Until you do that you'll be wasting a lot of time fretting over something you CANNOT change.

Besides - if gas goes up 10˘ a gallon overnight... what are you gonna do? Either get out there and enjoy, or sell it and stay in Vrbo.

If I were you I'd budget for 8 mpg... anything better - it's beer money!

Thanks for your reply. My previous rv got 6-7 mpg, so i wasn't expecting much better numbers. Thanks for your help.

For us, the RV's daily operating budget is $200.00. I'm retired and usually travel less than 250 miles a day. I budget $150.00 a day for fuel. I'll stop, put in my 150 and drive on. I rarely look at the fuel gauge. The rest is for a decent campground. From my last trip from Central Texas to Missoula, Montana, the per mile cost of fuel was $.43. Yes, I kept a spreadsheet. Cost per mile of operation gives me a better idea of how much to budget. Average cost of campground was over $50 a night for a six week trip.

State parks are usually to far off the beaten path to be viable overnight stops. Destination spots, maybe, but most are not convenient to my path. That and most of them are old, run down camping spots. I didn't buy my RV to camp in the woods. I want paved roads, running water, electricity and wifi when I stop for the night.

We pull a 4300 lb Cherokee with our 2018 F53 w/V10.
I checked the mileage once to get a baseline to calculate fuel stops. I base our fuel consumption on 7 mpg. I don't like to let the 80-gallon tank get much under a half, so gas ups are at 280 to 300 miles about what we like to drive in a day.

Different strokes... but I always say that if everyone looks alike, thinks alike and acts alike the world would be a VERY boring place! There's a French saying for that.

We are almost opposite! We plan our travels to specifically be off the beaten path... parked in the woods away from civilization in the middle of nowhere! We only go to established campgrounds out of necessity for filling and dumping. We have plenty of "civilization" in daily life. Our motorhome allows us to escape.

2017 Four Winds 24F on E450 with V10. Cold tire pressure was 70 PSI on front and 75 on back. Tires hot were 76/82. Empty holding tanks all around. Recent trip on I-95 corridor NC to FL was 8.6 MPG with light highway winds. Return trip was 7.7 MPG with heavy head winds. Speed mostly 65 MPH and below. My observation - over 65 and the MPG drops like a rock.

Your mileage is about the same as mine in my Four Winds 23U.

When I had my Sprinter van, I would set the cruise control on the highway at 73 mph. Now that I've moved on to the Ford E350, I've slowed it down to 65 mph, regardless if the posted speed on the interstate is higher.

I average 7.6 mpg while towing our Ford Flex going 62 mph. That is our "sweet spot". I was driving 60 mph and averaging 7.4 mpg.

Just drove our 2023 Axis 24.1 to a couple of parks in Florida, probably averaged 65 MPH (Interstate and secondary Highways). Gas mileage averaged around 11 MPG according to the dash display

Try 55 mph and get 15 miles per gallon

Not towing, I have gotten 14.2 on a 1000 mile trip using 55 as my upper speed..
There’s something to be said for owning a motorhome that resembles a large suppository!
