With no gas gauge or odometer....that's quite a guess

My '60-NY with 500" engine and longram-intakes with two 625cfm carb AND 3.91 gears in the rear got 11.5 MPG on the highway some time ago.

Just FYI ;)

   Is the intake the standard performer or the performer RPM?
 
I home again!
 
It's the standard Performer.  Since my motor is stock in all other ways I thougth the RPM would be over-kill.  I am running duals as well - 2.5" all the way to the rear.

My new Yorker averages 16.28 MPG on the highway,12 city.
Ross' Monaco fairs well,too.
During our road trip to National Moparts last week,we thought Moparmatt was in front of us with his Cadoo-ack which appeared to be gettting excellent gas mileage!!
 
Yes, but what is the truck getting?

I've noticed there is usually a big difference in fuel mileage between B and RB motors.
 
My 383 in my 68 coronet would bet 22-24 on the highway and 16-18 around town...3.23 and auto. 
 
Well I'll see what my mileage in the wagon goes up to when I rebuild the bottom end....right now it's got over 100K miles on it.

I think the main difference comes when the 440 is involved.  The NY I had had the 413 RB.  I was very pleased with the MPG I got with that motor.  When I first drove it a long distance (Interestingly, it was to RCP where I drove my Newport two weeks ago.) and got 18 I was estatic!  When I read that the '62 NY won an award for best MPG for a "luxury" car, at 18 MPG, my baloon burst.  I thought it was "me."  Turned out to be the car and motor. 
 
My parents got 17 on a trip to Louisiana in '67 in our '65 383 HP Newport.  That was fully loaded with four people and luggage.  They were pleased.
 
I think it may have more to do with cubic inches than anything else. 
 
I averaged 18 in my '93 B250 Van with 318 magnum.  A buddy gets 13 with his '96 B250 that has the 360 magnum.
 
I'll tell you, the best car I've ever had for MPG and comfort was my '70 Challenger with 225 and A230 3-speed.  I got 27 on the highway!  I loved it!  It had great looks and mileage.
 
Wish I had it still.
