Overall, I would say my Gen 1 gets decent fuel mileage.8 miles to the gallon most likely. A buddy of mine just got rid of his Chevy 454 because it was getting 8mpg.
Great post, guy. I've researched in my local area and out of town, where I can purchase non ethanol gas. I've noticed on average of about a + 2mpg difference, not to mention that the power and performance is back. Yeah, I do wish Congress would get a clue. Ethanol is not helping anyone, except the chosen few.I get 17 to 18 MPG in my CC LE 4x4 driving 12 miles each way to work in mixed traffic each day here in Austin, Texas. It goes down over 1 MPG during the winter when the government pushes us to use the crappy blended ethanol CRAP. Please kill off pork barrel crap like ethanol as it is a waste of corn and US money. Ethanol = the FAIL. Screw all those with the yellow gas caps and let them enjoy poorer gas mileage and the same subsidise government pricing as those purchasing regular dino based fuel.
No thanks, I'll stick with the ole crude based gas as it is FAR better for MPG without raising food prices. Now if we can just master alternate sources of energy besides corn, I'm all for it if it displaces oil. I'm not a tree hugger, but I do like the shade and can't wait for alternate sources that make REAL sense.
