Default What Diesel Mileage does your VS30 get?

In US MPGs what mileage does your VS30 model get on the Hwy, and what speed do usually drive at?

Default Re: What Diesel Mileage does your VS30 get?

Mileage varies based on model, load, fuel, terrain, weather, driving habits and road conditions. Over time I get a wide range of about 16 to 20 on individual fills and an overall average of close to 18 mpg with my 2015 3500 dually 170 WB extended RV that was upfitted to 9,400 lbs. My new RV will be a 2019 2500 144 WB upfitted at 7,400 lbs. At 2,000 lbs. lighter and assumed better transmission I think I will easily exceed that. I don’t know if I will approach my 2005 T1N performance of 22 mpg. It would sure be nice.

To get an actual MPG analysis. Fill up...set trip meter....drive til almost empty. Fill up again...divide miles by gallons . Do this process 3 more times and then average the 3 . That will give a fairly accurate MPG assessment. Trying to use the on board computer does not work accurately. Past experience shows using the vans MPG counter was off by 3-4 MPG

Exactly we need to find some one who runs predominately highway miles and see what the real numbers are with the cruise on at 70 and @75 mph.

I will be doing a trip June 3rd with exactly 980lbs in the vehicle (assuming I don't gain or lose weight). All interstate. Can let you know then.

Hey guys, recently picked up a passenger 144 with the diesel 6 cylinder. Unfortunately, I am only getting 14.3mpg, any way to increase the mpg?

You should re calculate. The older 5 speed auto versions beat that.
