I hope it's more than the 12-14 mpg my PG gets. I'm about to switch a 2004R into mine. I'm just hoping for more than 20 mpg.

yeah I just checked today what i get on my inline 6 with a power glide and it was around 12-13 mpg. But that was before I checked the points which were off. wondering how I could improve this matter. I will be switching to a th 350 soon then on to a 383 hopefully.

If you get 18 MPG you should be happy.

I am getting about 16 MPG; 3:36 gears, 200-4R, 26" tires, and 330 HP V8 crate motor.
