View Full Version : Gas mileage on the Jeep

I have a stock rebuilt 360 and a Holley offroad carb. I'm not sure what the gas milage should be but it cost me $12.00 to go from Cloverdale to Mission. The carb has been crap since day one. Jeep Thrill sent me to a "local Holley expert" but it's still loads up and runs like crap.

I know the 360 sucks gas but I not sure if it should suck that much. Any thoughts on what I can do to improve my range short of putting a bigger tank in? Put it this way if I fill up in Mission I'm right out of gas when I get to SKOOKUMCHUCK hotsprings and I have a 66 liter tank

Well if he did buy a Susucky, it would at least be better than a toyota.

But it wouldn't haul anything, I'll pay the $0.02 more per week in fuel to have a little cargo room and not flip trailers[f]

[e]Actually the "flipping trailer" was a FORD thing.
















Or maybe it was the "driver"[f]
