Numerous conditions affect gas mileage. (speed, hills, driving habits, wind), Fuel consumption will vary according to the conditions.

RV Rent Vancouver Island offers no guarantee to fuel consumption and does not offer reimbursements to guests where fuel consumption is less than estimated on our website.
