can you use more MPG?
Couple of months I was changing oil on my 57 ranch wagon. Looking at the frame member. Plenty of nook& cranys for air flo be traped. I had some lawndevider made out of flexable plasticalong with brackets . I cut this just inside of wheeltrack. I did this without choping the car . Last sun I went to a cruise about 80mi away . Got 19.21mpg ,up from 18mpg TRy it your self
