It will truly depend on your driving style and if you are towing. My previous coach was a 34.2. Fully loaded coach by itself weighed approx 20,800 lbs, at that weight I averaged 7.5 to 8 mpg driving conservatively. Cross a mountain pass and it will drop to under 6 mpg. If you are a lead foot or in a hurry, mileage can drop to approx 5 mpg!!

Once I started pulling a CRV, the mileage dropped to approx 6.5 mpg, again driving conservatively. I invested in a ScanGuage II, plugs into the OBD II port and mounts on dash. I'm able to monitor real time gas mileage and drive accordingly, I really like the ScanGuage, it allows you to see where and when you burn the most fuel while driving. On a long road trip, multiple fill-ups, it really adds up!

I love Scan gauge too. You can set it up to monitor almost anything that has a sensor. Like trans temp, voltage, horse power, intake air temp, current MPH, avg MPG, Tank MPG, Day MPG, current speed, avg speed, ete, etc,
