After buying my used Ecamper last week I filled the tank and reset the trip. I kinda freaked out at 200 miles, I was just above 1/4 tank left. I popped into safeway to refuel and took about 9.6 gal to fill it. Using the iphone calculator I found I got 21.7 mpg. That about 65% city and 35% hwy with normal driving. Not aggressive but not babying the gas either. Kept RPMs under 3k mostly. I think thats pretty darn good for an Element with the Ecamper conversion. This time Im gonna let it run closer to empty and see how many miles I can get out of the tank. :)

21 mpg is not bad at all.

I see you have an 08 4WD E model . Do you use the VSA or stability control feature on your 08? Any experience you can share w/it on and off driving up mountain/windy road. Deciding 08 4WD vs prev years/older models (less expensive). Thanks!

22 - 24 MPG for me

Have a 2007 Ecamper 4x4 with Yakima rack and box up top. Just drained a full tank on the highway at 70-75 mph with two stops. 268 miles. 23.9 mpg. Cruise control is your friend.
