If you are worried about juice pouring out the back then double check the fuel filler cap, seal and gasket.
I am adamant on full tanks and spirit driving I lose a bit out of the back tank. After the recent skid pan session I noticed signs of fuel on back bumper as a result of having a full tank and thrashing the bejesus out of it.
Check your vacuum advance is working on dizzy perhaps?
Dont worry mine guzzles like a sailor but might be because I drive it like steve mcqueen. I think you need to build a bigger motor fit an exhaust and enjoy the mustang dream! There is nothing like going for a cruise in the stang to sooth the soul.
Keep the tyres over inflated, that will help a little and doesn't cost anything and don't leave the bodies in the boot too long as the extra weight is bad for fuel consumption and they start to stink after a while.
Maybe I will just rip the 8 speed out of the wifes new jeep and stick that in, although dont know if that is overkill for the toyota efi 4cyl?????
bugger the 4 cyl wot about a nice twin turbo 2 ltr v6..?
that way you can pretend your saving fuel( see dear it's only that thing in the previous sentence,... everyone knows 2ltr are economical..) job done..
If your worried about fuel economy as it's a daily driver, you may want you look at putting a filthy big supercharger on your 289. More horsepower equals speed which equals getting from point A to point B, therefore better fuel economy.
I was initially gonna mention something sensible about my experience with a stock A code 289 with a 450 Holley, Bosch electronic dizzy, mild cam, conservative diff ratio, 22mpg highway cycle etc etc, BUT... I MUCH prefer the way this thread has gone...
Well done boys! Great advice to start from what you have at the top and work down. No use throwing a way a perfectly good 600!
