how many miles per gallon does it get?

5 Answers


mines a 1992 flare side and it gets about 16-18 on a 302


1981? probably about 10 to 12 on a good day depending on rear end and engine and condition


delivers 17-18+ highway mpg depending on your driving style

My 1981 ford f150 with only 55,000 original miles gets 20 -22mpg


Depends on what engine and drivetrain/gear ratio. My '85 got 8-10 mpg. But I had 4x4 4speed with 4:10 and a rough 302 v8.
