Hi to everyone,

Can you help as would like to know what the 302 5ltr V8 does on a run and around town ?

Picking up my 1976 ghia on the weekend and would love to run it all year as not many people have one in the UK ...
Thanks Rob

I have 75 mustang with a 302 v-8. If the rear end gears are 2.79 you can expect to get 14 mpg in town and 20 mpg highway. This bepends on your driving habits. I had changed the gears in mine to 3.50. My mpg around town went up but high way went down and at highway speeds the engine runs faster.If the car will see in town use more it is worth the gear change. Hope this helps,v-8 dont get great gas mileage.

Will use the car as a treat more than a daily drive so no gear changes couldn't afford it at that MPG .....

Thanks John
