I haven't noticed a significant mpg improvement on mine since installing the Banks but it sure will git up n go! Probably because I get on it a little harder cruise a bit faster. I've been cruising at 70 vs 55-60 prior to the Banks. It runs cooler but watch the EGT on the hills. I get 11 to 13 depending on which way the wind is blowing.

I feel like the gas mileage god here. I've got a 2008 Safari Sport 17' and tow with an F-150. I get 14 mpg. Smaller is better!

'95 Airstream Classic Pusher

My '95 diesel averages 11.5-12 MPG over the 4 years and 15,000 miles I've owned it.
I just had a Banks power pac and stinger system installed, so mileage should improve a little, I know the power has improved considerably. Banks claims increases in HP up to 75 and torque up by some 70-80- pounds so mileage should be better too.

I think 9 mpg at 70 mph towing a motorcycle is the number for the beast

My overall average since new with 7500 miles is 19.2 mpg recorded on the vehicles built in trip computer. Best daily mileage was 21.5 mpg on trip to Key West. I normally drive 60-65 mph and discovered that strong headwinds can cut 2-3 mpg off my mileage.

Mine is the long 24 foot MB Sprinter van and very comfortable travel for two people with no pets.

Waiting for your evaluation after you get some miles on it. Still happy with mine.

'88 345 mileage

With the new overdrive transmission, new Banks headers and exhaust system, and new goodyear tires I am hoping to break 11mpg in flat country. Will re-post later.
