Not too bad, low 20's i'd guess, "only" had a mild 5.2 in it probably better MPG than my Capri actually, insurance was cheap though and it was tax exempt of course :wink:

A mate has a 69 R/T four speed manual with a hot 440 (7.2) in it that struggles to do double MPG figures :shock: , big fast noisy monster of a car though 8)

I have a tuned 440 in my Interceptor that struggles to stay in double figures. Keeps busting it's torqueflite box too. Makes a nice noise though.
