Re: Eco Diesel Mileage - Towing

Just returned from an 1100 mile trip to West Texas, towing our Lance 1685 Travel Trailer, which weighed just under 5000lbs.

Trip average was 14.8mpg with a towing speed of 65mph.

We regularly see 28mpg on the highway cruising at 70mph

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

I live in west Texas and all the speed limits on the highway average 75. Got a bad tank a week ago and it wouldn't do any better than 22.2mpg. New tank of fuel and it's coming back up to 25mpg while doing 80mph and slight city driving. I have seen 27+ at 80 but that's when it was hotter outside.

5k on an overland 4x4.

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

Temps on the 50s today - I saw the 2mpg hit I took last week come back. Won't last though - huge drop in temps tomorrow with 3-5+ snow expected. Time to try snow mode.

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

Yesterday I had a chance to take the GC on its first straight highway trip.
A little over 300 miles and averaged 31.2 mpg! That was hand calculated!

So far with just over 7000 miles I have been averaging 26.3 mpg in mixd driving.

Can't beat that!

Cool, but you should double check that with a manual calculation at refill. EVIC seems to use a rolling average over some limited recent distance.

A 300 miles rolling average is an oft-quoted number around here, but there is no proof this is true.

I reset the fuel avg after every fillup (not just the trip odo), and its never been more than about 0.2 mpg off from hand calculation.

I did a ~800 mile round trip this week; 29 mpg there and 28.1 mpg on the way back. B20 for the whole trip and ACC set to 80

Just completed a tour of the Texas Hill Country.
Drove from Houston to Johnson City. Drove the surrounding area for the next 2 days. Had allot of wind and was hauling bikes off the back. I'll take 26.9 any day.

Re: Eco Diesel Mileage

I routinely get between 29 mpg - 30.3 mpg on my JGC Ecodiesel while driving Seattle - Orange County on either I-5 or 101/PCH. Whenever available I try to use "pure" diesel #2 (no biofuel) and never use more than 5% biodiesel. I tend to drive 5 mph over the limit (70-75 on much of I-5)band use Adaptive Cruise Control on the Interstates. I do not use ACC on secondary roads. My best mileage was with a full loaded vehicle in Michigan when I got 33.3 mpg on level state highway road, no wind, driving about 55 mph for 145 miles. I have a photo of the trip computer on my camera, but it is not available at the moment. Around town, mixed local and freeway, I get 23 - 25 mpg. The first 25 - 50 miles are always the worst mpg. A warm engine seems to help.
