Out here on the left coast the gas pumps say it may contain 10%.

Make him put it in writing that he'll pay the difference from what it really gets.

Now mine is an old one. 2000 28'er with 23k on it. Not even with a tailwind, and downhill both ways. 8-10 is more like reality. Of course I run mostly at 4k to 5k feet altitude.

If yours gets 14 I want to know where you live and what brand of gas you use.

Try some injector cleaner, then change your fuel filter. My injectors got dirty at about 16-17k miles. Mileage went down to about 6mpg. Added a bottle 16oz of acetone to about 40gallons of gas. Took it down to 10 gallons remaining before refueling. 60gallons later I was back up to 8-9 mpg. This was on a trip to Canada from Colo. ... I still need to replace my fuel filter. Didn't have a spare or the tool to do it with.

Our 2011 31DS is no problem to fuel, we get 8.5-9.0 MPG. Lots of mountain passes and such here in the Northwest, which doesn't help.

I used 10% ethanol mixture for the first time in Washington state when I went there to pick up my TT. Their fuel prices were 10 cents a gallon higher and my mpg was slightly lower. I don't think my pickup ran as well.

I am wondering if some of the slow fueling problems are caused by the EPA regulations. Some of the stations, not in Montana or Wyoming, have those sealing gaskets when you fuel. I think CA is the worst. The pump won't run unless it is totally sealed off with the gasket.

Hi everyone it's my first post as i just joined this forum. I have a Jayco Escapade 31A 2003 and love it. Has served my wife and i with little problems. On the thread of filling the gas tank i have found that if you can manage to have the front of the unit lower by just a little bit it fills rather well. I think the reason i and many have problems is that the filler tube is to small and rather far from the tank and to near level. It's just something we have to live with i guess. By the way it still beats the H double L out of tents. Denny

Our 2010 31ss has the same problem. Had the dealer and others look at it. No kinks in the vent hose. I was told that if it gets over filled the vent gets fuel in it. I have had it not give me trouble at times. The best way to fuel faster is to turn the handle up and hold it there while filling. Some what of a pain but it does work.
