I average around 25mpg, around 50/50 highway/road. Pretty awesome considering I drive aggressively and the avg mileage for this year is 18/24

I'm also at 16-18. I very rarely go on the highway, maybe once a month, most of it is city (stop and go) driving.

I got 24MPG combined on my last tank in the 1989 Thunderbird.

I get roughly 8 mpg around town and I flirt with double digits on the highway. :/

I'm pretty sure he had a 460, nothing else gets fuel economy that miserable. He could have had a 400 but thats 351W based and does pretty good on gas with damn near the same torque output as a 460.

Aye, when I was looking into taking the old 460 powered F250 off of my dad's hands I decided against it when he mentioned that the best it ever got was around 8 city/12 highway. With fuel at roughly $4 a gallon at the time it was a deal breaker.

It was a work truck. It was the epitome of a beater. We paid $250 for it and its sole purpose was lugging that sander around in the snow. Plow with the Silvy, sand with the ol Ford. I'm not sure what year it even was (Conner says '79?), but it was an absolute tank. Full time 4x4, automatic, PTO built into the rear bumper, factory lift, etc etc. Ordered originally by a feed mill for farm work. My uncle bought it from them and registered it for road use for the first time in like 1998

We never knew for sure what it had in it, or if it was even the original motor. It had to have been a 400 or 460 though. As for pretty good on gas, nothing gets good gas mileage when it's geared like that lol. Top speed was all of 60 mph, ran out of revs lol, but it sure pulled like a train getting there.

A 1970s F-250 Custom with full time 4WD, factory lift, some massive engine, a carburetor, and the gearing of an airplane tug doesn't make a good highway cruiser.

Yep 1979. Only year with the big grille and square headlights above the turn signals on the base trucks (the fancy 1978s had that setup too, 78 base trucks had round headlights). It makes we wonder if someone could have even shoehorned an old pre-76 FE block in the thing... (360/390/428)
