Warm 351 Cleveland fuel mileage
Posted 09 October 2016 - 02:49 PM
These figures are based on mainly around town driving and very little Freeway.
Just wondering what mileage other people are getting from their 351 clevos.
Dad's is running a 750 edelbrock and mine is a twin throttle body gas research system

Might also be worth mentioning gearbox used and diff ratio you are running.
I will be interested to see what people are getting as I am currently planning what to do engine wise in my XE.

thats a bad diff gear ... I would move to a 3.45 or 3.27 diff with a T5 and watch the fuel usage go down

I don't come in here often, but when I saw this thread, I thought I may be able to contribute....
My Cleveland is and has been for many years, returned around 12l/100km on the freeway, or 22-23 mpg in old money. Around town it gets a little thirstier at around 15l/100km (18.5 mpg)
I run a 351C in and XA Coupe, with a 4sp Top Loader and a 3.0:1 9" diff.
I built my engine for the results I have achieved and I'm very happy with the grunt it has down low....
