Tips to Conserve Fuel

  • Camp closer to home. With more than 16,000 campgrounds nationwide, RVers can enjoy the outdoor experience whether they travel five miles or 500 miles.

  • Stay longer in one place. Many RV parks are vacation destinations in their own right, offering pools, playgrounds, hiking trails, entertainment centers, organized activities, convenience stores and so much more.

  • Cook your family favorites in the convenience of an RV, to avoid the high costs of eating out.

  • Drive 55 instead of 65. Keeping speed constant and lower saves fuel, saving you money.

  • Pack lighter by not topping off fresh water tanks until at the campground and by purchasing firewood and other camping materials on-site to keep the RV lightweight while traveling. Be sure holding tanks are dumped before heading out to further lighten the load.

  • Tune up the engine of your motorhome or tow vehicle, inflate tires properly and conduct regular maintenance to maximize fuel efficiency.

  • Use the grade of fuel recommended by the engine manufacturer to increase miles per gallon.

  • In the summer months, travel earlier in the day when the weather is cooler and the vehicle air conditioning is needed less.” To read the entire article click here.
