How many MPG do you get?


Just curious, is this right?

1989 302, AOD, 3.55 gears with 31" tires getting 11-12 mpg with half city, half highway driving.

What are you running and what kind of gas mileage are you getting? Thanks.

Re: How many MPG do you get?

I've got an 88, 351 EFI w/ 32" Mud T/As. I also get 11-12 MOG overall. My tires are abot 12% taller than stock, so I take my odometer readings and add about 12%, giving me 11-12MPG. On the odometer it reads closer to 10MPG. Broncos are thirsty!

93 351, Auto, 4" lift, 32" tires. I get from 10 to 14 miles per gallon. I have heard that the 302 should get from 12-16mpg and even better with the MAF setup.

Re: How many MPG do you get?

11-12 MPG sounds pretty good considering you're pushing something down the road with the aerodynamics of a barn, lots of rotating machinery and a whole bunch of mass. Take it off-road and things go down hill real fast

Re: How many MPG do you get?

'79 351M, 33/12.50 Mud Terrains and stock gears, new intake, carb, headers and a few goodies, when primed and timed (on a recent south beach trip), 14.3 MPG highway (corrected for tire size), 6-7MPG for the beach run. The highway mileage was surprising, but I wasn't mashing it to reduce enforcement visibility...

Re: How many MPG do you get?

Hey you guys are doing pretty good. I get about 8-9 mpg's and that even highway/city driving. I have made a few mods and I'm running 35" BFG's. I have a 351W fuel injected and there really isn't much I can do about the mpg's. With the exception of losing weight on my lead foot.

Later,

Bravoman

Man, I\'m lucky!!!

88 Bronco, 302 AOD, no lift yet31" A/T's... I get 16-18 mpg on highway, and almost the same around town. Only 14 miles round trip each day to work. I'm getting ready to swap in a
302 roller motor with B303 cam, MAC shorty headers and a new exhaust... We'll see what happens to the mileage then!
