    Yeah, I can also work on a 351...a diesel, no idea...But when I said I get 8-0 mpg...thats going 50-55, thats the speed limit here for trucks with trailers. Also, half my drive is a 50 zone...still a highway...just a slow one....Ugh. So yeah, if I was going 70...I imagine I would get even less. But I am towing a 10 foot trailer with waterlogged wood... Prob weighs a ton or more...just the trailer. Plus dump a load of grass...2 people...lotta weight.
