Default Re: Choices 3.0 V6 or four cyliner????

Then I default to the second half of the above statement, you're doin it wrong. I beat on mine like a runaway slave, and the worst I've gotten was a hair under 26, and I average around 28. Trailer pulling excluded from mileage statements, but I got 21 pulling 7000lbs.

my 3.0 gets better mileage than the 2.3 of the same year, plus the 3.0 makes more TQ, and most importantly, the vulcan WILL LAST FOREVER, unless the cam syncro decides to take a shit.

The thing about pushrod engines I love is that they are so easy to take the head off because you don't need to reset the timing.

yeah another good advantage. My dad had to pull off the oil pan on his 2.3 to find TDC for #1 piston so he could re-time the ohc. He threw a couple wrenches that night...
