    What makes it even worse is it only had 56k miles when I sold it. & even with a 5.7 liter V8 it still managed 31-32 mpg highway cruising @ 75-80 mph in 6th gear.

    Lol I actually get decent mileage with my mustang. About 20 on the highway (got like 10 before the 5 speed swap) . Not too shabby for a hot rod. I do get 8-9 when I drive it hard (which is most of the time)

    I think those 4.0's are suppose to have some strong torque...though....my V6 in my wrangler gets about the same but it does have 20's on it...

    If I actually cared about as mileage, I would have complained about the fact that my 96 Saab 900 got 13mpg. All it had on it was a boost controller...And a bad vacuum leak lol

    I don't care about mileage on the stang as it gets maybe 1k on it a year. Nice to know I can go on a road trip now and not pay out the *** for gas. Saves the engine too. Partially why the old engine blew, it turned 3300 on the highway. Now I turn 2k at 70

    I'm hoping the 67 will be decent on fuel with the FI conversion...I'm gonna try and get a 150+ out of it at a show this spring or summer

    Don't do that to that poor car. You will never get decent gas mileage with a 2 speed powerglide either. I don't care if you throw a prius engine in there.

    my Z28 would run 80 mph @ 1600 rpm......& w/ a quick downshift would go from 80-140 in seconds.

    For drag racing yes. Not for getting good gas mileage.

    powerglide sounds like some kind of lube.
