My 96 gets 17 MPG in mixed driving. I am hoping for better when I replace the slushomatic and set the timing.

Mine around 15 around town. Never had it on a trip without pulling at least a 5600 pound trailer and then it got 13.7. The same loaded with 4760 pounds got 12.5. Flat ground mostly between Mobile, AL and St. Augustine, FL and return.

Going up north tomorrow (all uphill, Mobile to Huntsville) 360 miles empty goin and grossing about 18,000 coming home. We shall see.
