Bronco Info: 1978 Bronco 9" lift, 35s, Cummins power
I built a '83 Bronco with a carbed 300 and a '95 5-speed that I swapped in, and that thing got about 20 mpg. As long as I kept the speed down. The aerodynamics of a Bronco aren't the greatest. Somewhat like a solid block of steel rolling down the highway.
The only thing better than the 300 for fuel mileage is a diesel.
