Without knowing the weight, gearing, type of terain, your driving habits, speed etc. All of these figure into mileage. But anyways a ball park figure would be anywhere from 6 to 7 plus. We once had a 34' Adventurer but it was on the chevy chasis and we avg a bit over 9 with that. The Ford 460 is a gas hog. We had a 25' MH with the 460 and only avg about 7 with that.

Don't jump to a diesel for fuel mileage only, you must take all other factors into the decision. I have a 34 ft Class A with 460 Ford and like everyone else maybe 8MPG on a good day. I would like to get better mileage with a Motor Home but after many years found that unless you want to only drive 50 MPH and not have a toad your out of luck. I'm not a full timer, and I'm not ready to fork out the additional expense of a diesel, and talking with others with a Banks system and others with the V-10 the MPG is still about the same. No answers are available, just fill up the tank every day, and enjoy your travels and health.
