O.K., all, what kind of mpg do you get with your cars? I have gotten a
suprise. My 62 coupe with the 64-110 with .030 oversize bore, 270 Isky
cam with mildly ported modified heads, roller rockers, 140 exhaust
manifolds and dual exhaust with 65 carbs with 51 jets has gotten 25.9 mpg
and 27.3 mpg the last too fill ups on unleaded 10% ethanol 91 octane fuel.
I'm pleased with my '67 110/pg /3.27 with 194k miles....and at least one used head put on by the PO 20 k miles ago..
Western Minilite stylewheels [ 11 lb] with 65 series high pressure tires... good alignment for least rolling resistance and still handle well.
Carbs are '65's HV'swith 51's Distributor gets 32 total at 2400 rpm.. with a VA that doesn't pull-in at less than 10" Hg
T-stat is sheilded to cause fast warmups to Cyl. headtemps of 350 in 2 miles of driving.
19-20 around town..... 27 on ONE tank on a 260 miles road trip on Hwy 101 [ 2 lanes - coastal ]
Running E10 / 89 octane [ cooler coastal temps]
