Re: gas mileage?

When mine was stock(1.3L FI - 205's), I got about 27mpg.

I'll be back.

Re: gas mileage?

31x10.50's with stock gears and a Pony carb.

I'm getting around 18 mpg. That's un-corrected for the speedo being off. So it works out to around 20 to 21 mpg actual.

I guess that's not bad for a vehicle that's shaped like a brick with 145,000 miles on the engine!
