 Hi ya
sorry but the forum isn't real fast at the moment, most people are out n about, 20 to 25 is average, on my 24ft bus (@4900kgs) I get 25mpg @ 50mph and 20@ 60mph.

On my 30ft motorhome @ 5000kgs I get 18mpg@ 50mph and 15mpg @ 60mph.

On my S75 van at about 6000kgs I get around 30mpg @ 50 mph and 25mpg @ 65mph.

On my mobile workshop, ex horsebox at 4600kgs I get about the same as my motorhome.

All vehicles have the perkins 4 pot 3.8 non turbo diesel engines (the bus has the newer phaser 90 though).

The phaser engine like all others run the same on red as white diesel though if you got chaugit using it you will most likely loose ya vehicle and be fined. As for finding another truck / engine it is a case of just keep looking as they are getting fewer by the week. :-(

never thought of this earlier but will add it now :

a company i used to work for, their vehicles used to have two tanks, one for white and one for red. in the cab there was a switch that controlled a valve which selected which tank was supplying the engine.  the idea being as soon as you drive off the road red was selected, then just before driving back on the road white was selected.

this was how the company 'always' ran their trucks.

i know its a bit fiddly to fit on a truck but as theirs were being used 60% off road it saved them alot of money.
