Boost the timing a couple of degrees and you will be even happier.

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 just found a station close by that sells 100% 91 octane unleaded (no
ethanol) and filled up. We'll see what I get with that.

If anyone is interested, here is the web page for stations selling no
ethanol fuel.  http://pure-gas.org/

What's your MPG?
