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.

Agreed. Kicking myself I didn't build something bigger than 302. Thought I would start my engine assembling career on the stock end....

Welcome aboard

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. Shocked

I am in the BURN that fuel Baby camp...... you have saved a classic, have not participated in killing the environment by purchasing a plastic car, and having a good time with her.

BTW: You can see this is a crazy group so stick around for more Mayhem....


I will someday think of something clever to say.

Brett,
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.

Welcome Brett.

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!
