Something like that would be measured in gallons per mile not miles per gallon

Really, don't expect much. My 350 on 35s gets around 7-9 on this crappy ND winter gas. I've gotten it into the 11s taking it easy on summer fuel but that's rare. Your numbers are going to be lower single digits. Maybe a bump up to 5 or 6 if you take it easy.
