Actually it's not 30mpg. Closer to 25mpg. It would have been nice if the data was portrayed a little more clearly.

For a small diesel MH at 60mph, that's nice but nothing too exceptional, particularly if there is a bit of tail wind.

Ah, if only I could get double digits in my C....10 would be great. But I live between 7 and 8 depending on if i'm pulling a dinghy or not, and speed, and wind, and....

I've never gotten above 8.3. 33 foot C. Loaded.

My minivan gets 18mpg with nothing in it, I'm ok with 7mpg carrying a week's worth of everything I might need.

At the end of the day, I'm still paying less for annual fuel costs than most of the world.

I agree-- terrific economy.

11 KM/liter= 25.87 MPG. Note, this is to the U.S. gallon.


To the Imperial gallon it works out to a little over 30 MPG.
