Default triton V10,gas milage

I only get 7 mpg driving 60mph. Visiting with other similar rigs with the triton v10, I am well below their averages of 8-8.5 mpg. Any suggestions othe than slowing down some more? My MH is a class A 34' ,10 years old, with 54,000 mi.

Thanks

Gary

I have had my "new" 2005 BT Cruiser with the Triton 6.8L V10 for 1 week, and have not driven it enough to check gas mileage. However, I do know that when the generator is running, it is drawing gas from the same tank as the V10 engine, so I wouldn't expect very good mileage if the generator is being used.
