since you're going with a mild cam gas milage should be relatively the same, it may even improve if you use a good exhaust setup and tune your fuel injection yourself. I would recomend a lower compression ratio though. 10:1 with AFR's can be ran easily in a pinto or a Maverick, but in a Bronco it has a god chance to detonate. Trucks and SUV's can put more load onto an engine and as a result are more detonation prone.
