    Anyone got some tips/3rd party hardware for improving gas mileage on clasa A motorhomes? Seven miles per gallon doesn't cut it.
    TIA

    Banks Power Pack. Significant improvement in both mileage and power. Worth the investment. Your post doesn't say what type engine you have but I am guessing it is the Ford V10 because the GM Vortec gets better gas mileage than that. But not much better.

    I had a Banks Power Pack on a 454 GMC 1 ton Pickup and the change was nothing short of amazing. They have a website and they advertise in Motorhome magazine. You will probably also appreciate the sound, not loud but a nice mellow rumble for sure.

    Good Luck!

    I have the Banks on a W22 and altho it performs much better, it didn't help the gas mileage at all. I'm not a hard driver either. I for the first time in my life changed to Mobil 1 synthetic oil and it made a noticeable difference in the mileage. Runs a bit cooler too. I'll never go back to non-synthetic oil. Next is the tranny to synthetic.

    I have an old 33' Bounder with a 454 Chevy engine. I try to run light and take it easy on the pedal. The 3 speed auto is no help(no overdrive). I was looking at Tornado(air flow) and a few other gadgets. It doesn't look to me as if any of them will actually work.
