66 t-bird 390fe 4-12mpg 94 octane with my 850 dp but i'm getting a 650 vacuum in the mail pretty soon

02 trailblazer says 16.5mpg adv. but that's not really right because i'm on the floor doing burnouts and going in excess of 100mph a lot of the time so probably like 24mpg if i'm off the throttle

Hi all,
Daily driver is a '04 chevy 3500 express van, about 20 mpg, 87 reg, no power adders. Hotrod is a '70 Nova, 540ci-720 hp, not a daily driver, 93 hi test, or 110 racegas with small timing change, or normally a 50/50 mix. Maybe 5 mpg, no power adders...mileage, ha... who needs stinking mileage. Wifes 'oo WS6 Trans-Am 26 mpg all stock except MA sensor and programing change. Snow plow truck is a '95 Dodge 3/4 ton 4X4 Diesel with a steel utility body 18 mpg, all stock, but look at price of diesel. Lastly a '86 ford 1/2 ton pick-up with straight 6 and auto, not great mileage here either 16mpg.
