    Not into car talk but assume by banger you mean Ford V10? Anyway, have E450 V10 on 28' Class C. Great power, no problems, mileage about 9 mpg.

    I have owned my Super Duty for just over 2 years now and the only problem that I have had with it is when pulling a heavy load uphill and standing on the accelerator the surpentine chirps a little. It will pass anything but a gas station! :laugh:

    We have a 1999 pickup with the V 10. Pulling 11,000 pound 5th'er averages 9 MPG. Great power and has been trouble free.

    We pull a Cardinal 33RLWB. Probably about 11,000 loaded. Use a F-350 V-10, 3.73 gears and have had no problem. I have even pulled up 6 and 7% grades. Mileage isn't great. I get (towing with AC running) around 9.2 if everything is good. PLulled into a head wind this summer going up in New Mexico and got 7.25 on the worse tank. I've put in a chip and get close to 15 when not towing on the highway.
