  2. Rene the difference is about the same everywhere. Diesels do get slightly better MPG but I don't think it would equal out financially to a gas powered RV.

  3. Yeah remember when a selling point for diesel was that the fuel was cheaper than gasoline because it didn't have to be refined as much?

    What happened to that?

  4. Maria diesel is a lot more so when you buy an RV do the math and see which fuel makes more financial sense. We bought our RV used off a dealers lot so we didn't have a choice. They only had one View and it had a 3.5L V6 gas engine. 2008 was the only year a buyer could get a gas engine in the View and Navion. Now, they're all diesel powered.

  5. I saw a sign in Texas today that said Diesel was 70 cents more a gallon than gasoline.

    A Winnebago Views fuel tank is roughly 26 gallons. 26 x 70 = $18.20 more per fill up.

    That's a lot and would certainly add up fast on a long trip.
