if youve owned one of these motors or worked on them you know that 20 is practically unfathomable. Good motors dont get me wrong nice cast iron motors that last forever but mpg was never a goal

LOL I think he meant to type 13 MPG....(in town) I havent seen an "older" full size truck break better than 18 in town....obviously our rangers will but they aren't full size.

The best I got from my old bowtie with a vortec motor (350) was 15 city and 18.5 hwy, and that was after a tuner and headers, however that was @ 75mph w/ A/C on.

Mind telling us how miles per gallon goes up with 1 or 3 or 5 gas tanks???







PS: I never saw over 11 in my old '95 F150 I6 work truck.....and I actually tried to drive it sensibly.
