Woosh,No shore power where I am in Key Largo.Had to run the Onan and AC for 3 F-ing days straight.It
used almost 25 gallons of gas and almost a quart of oil.Pretty impressive actually as it has been 90 degrees in the shade.

24 gallons in 3 days = 8 gallons in 24 hrs? That's .333 gal/hr. Pretty darned good imo.

If it were a vehicle going 60, that's 180 mpg, right?

180 mph x 5280 ft = 950,400 × 12 = 11,404,800 ÷ 60 = 190,080 inches per minute
32.5 ×3.14118 = 102.08705
102.08705 ÷ 190,080 = 1861.94037 rear wheel rpm
3.7 gear × 1861.94037 = 6889.17937 rpm. Then factor in tire growth and
converter slip . Yep I can do it.

My Wife sezs I have some kind of problems with numbers. I just don't see it :rolleyes:

Oh no.....you've made an error my friend. Pi is 3.14159 rather than the 3.14118 you have in your second line of multiplication (tire diameter). That is unless you are using a secret racin' formula...... :devil: :devil:

I seem to have used incorrect mathamatical grammer.
190,080 inches per minute ÷ 102.08705 inch wheel circumference = 1861.94037 wheel rpm

:cool:

You're all wrong. The tire lying flat might have a dia of 32.5, but when its rolling its FLAT
on one side. The rolling circumference is determined by the length of the belt inside, much
like the length of a track on a tank. Bruce Roe
