...I remember reading that article. At the time, I had a '72 Pinto with that Ford-of-Britain (FOB) 1.6L 36 mpg at typical 55 mph, of course, I'd done a few tweeks like change the stock 3.55:1 axle to 3.18:1; switch from breaker points to fully electronic ignition; and installed a "tri-Y" header from a Cortina.
