I waas just wondering what kinda of mileage everybody is getting, especially people with 351's, please give some details on your truck too
I get about 12-15 mpg with mine, it depends on where im driving or how im drivin, i got a c-6 with 350 gears and 33's, and some sidegapped plugs and no emmissions stuff
on a quiet night your can hear the chevys rusting away
Well, I've got a very similar setup, 85 F150 4x4 C6, 3.55 gears, 33" mud tires, but the best I've done in the past few months is 9mpg. For a while last winter I got a real consistent 5mpg, but that was due to a dead choke. The carb is pretty much dead, but she runs so I don't really care right now. I just got a 95 EB Bronco with a 302, so the 85 is gonna be more of a toy than a daily driver. Not sure how the emissions test here in MA will affect her, hopefully I won't have to sell her .

I get about 12mpg empty and about 9 pulling a gooseneck, so I think you are doing pretty good.

hey 85351ho...what do you think of the side gapped plugs, any power or mileage increases? it seems like an easy enough mod if it works. as far as mileage i get 12 - 15 with my 96 351 e4od ext cab sb with a moon visor, stock tires
Believe it or not I have been consistently getting 16mpg since I put my K&N in... even doing 90 mph..
1991 F150 Nite, 5.8L, E4OD, K&N filter charger... 160 K and still going strong

hey guys I have a 85' F-150 4x4 with a C-6 transmission and a 351W HO. The motor has about 300k miles on it and I have 3.77 gears. Im getting about 10-12mpgs in town and on the highway. Im planning on rebuilding the engine soon so hopefully ill get better mileage.
83 F250 2wd with 3.54 rear axle & 8000 miles since being rebuilt -
cruising at 55mph, empty, is giving consistent 16.5mpg(US gals - but I'm in NZ) on open road driving.
AOD trans, but I seldom use OD due to hilly area.
