Shouldn't be that low unless you have a super cam and a big ole carb...
Should be more around 14 or better on the highway if you keep your foot out
of it...

hahahaha ...sorry, don't mean to laugh at you Brad, but that's what my dad
said too ... he got a truck with a C6 and 4.10 gears ...no way you're gettin
much over 10 if at all with that ... heck the Lightnings witht he OD tranny
are barely rated for that on the highway ... I think we need to establish
what year and such again to be sure we're talkin the right motors ... in my
experience the stock 351W's are sorely under powered for a full size truck
and will require considerable fuel to move at any kind of speed ...

Just my $.02
