Cool ** 18.16 Miles Per Gallon **

Hey Guys here is an update for you. I just turned over 800 miles on the new 383/700R4 combo. I filled up with gas tonight on the way home from work. My new combo knocked down 18.16 MPG on this last tank full and that was combined city/hwy driving. The old school 350/TH350 combo I had got 10-12 MPG with 93 super unleaded. I AM DIGGING THIS! And another cool thing is that I am using 87 octane regular gasoline.

WooHooo!

I have subsrcibed to the other post.... with my tremac on the way and a stroker kit in the immediate future, your combo sounds tasty. My 327 gets 11 mpg at a constant 70mph!
What's the secret? that tiny roller cam?

Re: ** 18.16 Miles Per Gallon **

great stuff, Dennis, thasnks for the tip. a post i looked at initially but had nothing to add, then didn't look at again until now. I'll be after you when I start serious planning my new combo. I'll need LOTS of torque to pull a 3.08 with a .64 OD.

Great to here Chris, That's about the same as I'm getting out of my 383/700R4 combo.
