Default Re: New Ford Engine

all the compact cars in the 80's got at least 40 mpg or better , my 67 Volkswagen bug with a 35 horse motor and a single solex carb got about 60 miles to the gallon, the car companies tell us that 60 to 70 mpg is just not possible with gasoline, why ? because there is still oil in the ground to sell us , any of you still remember the special carb a fellow built called the "evaporator" back in the 70's oil crunch that allowed a 460 ford big block lincoln to achieve 60 mpg running on gas ?
i generally take the long cut home
