    I don't think I ever got better than 12mpg out of a 350. Most times were 10mpg.

    Yeah, no kidding!

    Even my 3/4 ton 6.0 with 34s on it got 13 in mixed driving.

    I don't think I averaged better than 10 or 11 with any half ton, and a small block. And a lot less power to add insult to injury
