THE ADD ONLY SAYS IT SLEEPS FOUR.........NO SPECS. SORRY FOR THE LACK OF INFORMATION. A GENERAL ANSWER WOULD STILL BE HELPFULL CAUSE EVERYONE IS TELLING ME 7 OR 8 MPG HWY WITH A GOOD WIND AT MY BACK....

THANKS

This is correct you are going to average about 7 mpg...... Lower pulling a hill or towing and higher running on flat ground doing. It might drop down to 5 mpg pulling a hill and could go up to 9 mpg running on flat ground, the good thing I see is the mileage it only has 46K and as these engines get older the gas mileage can drop down. The more weight the lower the mileage will be. But I suspect you will average around 7 mpg.....

 

Hope this helps some.... Robert
