From my post in 2011, I went to a Mike's 5 Star and have been running it ever since in the 89 Performance/Tow selection. I get consistant 12 mpg solo and 8.6 towing my 9,000 lb Airstream. Change your plugs every 50-60k and you will bump up some and also use non-ethanol gas; more power and a 1 mpg bump.

We have a 2002 Classic 31' with a slide. I changed out my wheels/tires to 16" Michelin LT's after having 3 blowouts on the standard ST's.

I used the Torque app on my cell and on a level road, ok slight downhill, @ 60, if I keep the throttle around 25% and load under 75% I can get 19mpg. As soon as the load hits 80% it drops pretty quick to 14 but I don't know how accurate it is. The lie o meter rarely varies from 11.4.

Now Im jealous! Dang good looking Airstream! Iv read where several Airstream owners are going to the 16s with a LT tire, simply because they last longer and far less blowouts! Happy camping!

As for me, even though this is a 12 year old thread, I have yet to breach 11 mpg, and that's with prolly 75% highway driving. Im thinking about a plug change in the near future.

Haha, I've only got the 5.4L and i'm getting about the same gas mileage, around 11mpg best. And that's with driving like a granny and an empty bed.

Only getting 7 mpg would definitely justify selling IMO. I traded a 1994 F-350 diesel off for my current truck because it wouldn't get over 11. Even at 10 mpg, im coming out ahead with the difference in price of fuel.

That's better then 7mpg. I would imagine there's something to do with driving style if you're getting 7mpg with rural/city driving. I know if I'm not paying attention I'll leave my foot on the accelerator more then it needs to be, wasting gas.

13 is pretty good. The most Iv ever seen is 14. I cant see how your getting 7 in town if your getting 13 highway though? Not sure whats going on there. To get 7 youd almost have to be hammering on it in stop and go traffic.
