Fuel Economy/mile ?????

45

Asked by Nov 28, 2010 at 07:00 PM about the 1979 Ford Ranchero

Question type: General

I have located a 79 Ranchero Brogham  with a stock 302. I was wondering what the fuel economy is on this beast? I may use it as a daily driver for a 80 mile RT commute. I presently drive a 93 f 150 that gets 12 mpg. The cost is getting to me. My brother bought a 82 El Camino with a stock 305. He says gets gets 18 mpg. anybody care to discuss? I also talked to an owner of a 69 ranchero with a rebuilt 302 . He says the late 60's vehicles got better fuel economy. Ant truth to that?

Thanks
