How many mpg do you guys usually get?

Asked by Feb 16, 2010 at 10:57 PM about the 1976 Chevrolet El Camino

Question type: General

I'll be getting my license next month and already have my car, a 1976 El Camino Classic with a 350 small block V8, two-barrel carb.  I just wanted to know what the average miles per gallon anyone gets with their El Camino.  Thanks.

i have a 1985 El Camino i had a 305 small block in it at first and I got about 22 M.P.G. I now have a 454 big block in it and I get about 12-14 M.P.G. obviously a lot less!

Your young, wanting to show what type of guts your car has, so expect to get from 10 to 19.5 MPG. Someone my age that bothers people on the freeway/highway will get between 18 to 20.25 on the road. Remember these cars were built when gas was under $1.50 a gal. Your mileage will depend on your driving, tune ups and if you are hauling a load of hay bales for the horses. High teens and low 20s is your expectation.
