Towing a Ford Focus on mostly state and county roads, we normally average 9.4 to 9.8 MPG. When we are forced to run Interstates, we rarely exceed 55 MPH.
Driving Interstates gets you past the country. Driving state and county roads gets you in the country.

Same for me towing a ford focus. I did add a 5 Star Tuner and it works great, didn't add any gas mileage, but help keep the transmission lock in longer and make the trip a lot better

I found several Group 27 batteries that I though would fit the battery tray on the PC at Battery One (Excide and Crown) and Battery Warehouse.  You might check those sources near you.

Found a place in Newark DE that has the 2700 series that will fit.  Its only a half hour from my house. They are $298 ea.
Thanks for your help. This forum is really great.

TomH is on the money...between 8-9 for the most part.  If you want to do 55 MPH MPG might go up some.  3100 is a very nice model that is perfect for a couple.   Good luck.

Hi,
I replaced the coach batteries in my new to me 2008 2551 in late January.  I went to S&S RV Super Service Center (recommended by Tom Hanlon).  George at S&S recommended Astro-Lite Group 27 Deep Discharge Marine batteries (12 volt).  He also tested the charging systems both from the vehicle alternator and the Trip Lite Inverter/Charger.  I had a very good experience with S&S and would recommend them. 
I see that you are in PA, but I don't know how far you are from Gettysburg.

David
Found out that astro-lite battery is no longer available.  It would have been perfect. Still searching for the correct size too. Will keep you posted..

About 8 mpg maybe a little more or a little less depending on conditions and you way of driving.

Can someone tell me approx. what the Ford 450 gets for gas mileage?  Would probably tow a small Pontiac vibe with it.  Thanks

Freckletweety I sent you an email.
replied to email and  checked out the battery mentioned  and found a place in Newark DE which is closer. I will call them tomorrow and get a price.  It seems the size of the batteries will work. The present ones are 12x6.25x8" high.   This battery from TSB Tri State is 6.9 high x6.5wx13 long.  I will double check the pan again to see if the 13"length will work.
Keep you posted. thanks for the help Smile
