the carb its running will make a substantial difference too. I've seen alot of 360's of that era with a factory 2 barrel, these ones tend to be pretty decent. Also the gearing will factor into hwy mileage and tire size obviously. 12ish sounds about right. my '76 440 crew cab gets the same with 4.10's and 35's

My 2bbl 360 with a 4 speed and 4.10 gears behind it on 35" tires get shit for mileage. my 4bbl was better until I put my foot into it.
