You claim 24+ mpg over 90 days on a 76 chevy el camino that has a 305 and weighs 4500 lbs. it downhill both ways to your job?????
Yeah guys I've got picss of the cars just haven't had tiime to post them, The el camino is mine The mercedes is my dad's He colle ts mercedes'

No it gets 25 MPG on freeway runs
and if you know anything about chevy motors you know the chevy 305 is the most fuel efficient V8 they made heck the 1990 Chevy caprice got 27MP EPA rated on the highway and that's running a 305 If my car was a bit more fuel efficient it'd help alot. That's why i'm getting a tonneau cover soon
haha actually it only weighs 4490 now, I got a turndown and that saved a few pounds haha. But in all honesty when you really think about it a 2 barrel 305 with advanced timing and overdrive with 2.56 gears isnt really that hard to get 24MPG in
