10 MPG!! Thanks everybody!

When I got the truck I was getting 7MPG and thanks to everybody here helping me with carb/idle/emissions/vacuum stuff I now get 10MPG. Once I get the EGR on and readjust the timing back to 12* (maybe 14*) I might even get 10.5!
Thanks!

All right, all right. Well 10 is much better than 7. Not to mention I do almost 100% city driving, lots of stop and go traffic. I'm still working on it anyways.

That would equate to 12-ish on the highway. You're pretty close.

I get 13.2 mpg religiously and drive ~95mi / day mixed city and hwy.

J10 SB AMC 360 w/TF727

I think a loss of 18-20% is a bit too steep just to call it a loss to city driving. There should be some fairly large issues at work here that can be easliy checked. You're on the right road keep going until you get above 12 at least.

Agreed with a 360/AT dragging a 4500 FSJ in stop-n-go city driving I wouldn't expect much better. At least you're in the double digits now.

I think 360 is the biggest issue aside from having a gas Hole on top of it. My 304 with 33" tires and rear shackle flip got 14 on bad days or fully loaded and 17 running light on the highway.
