What is the gas mileage of a Budget® truck?
According to their website, Budget trucks get the following gas mileage:
- 12-foot truck: 8-14 miles per gallon
- 16-foot truck: 6-10 miles per gallon
- 26-foot truck: 8-10 miles per gallon (diesel fuel)
Why is fuel usage important? Because fuel isn’t included in the cost to rent a truck, and the extra cost of fuel can significantly impact your moving budget. In fact, if you’re traveling long-distance, it’s entirely possible that fuel could as much double the price of your move — turning an economical option into something more expensive.
