Anyone have any tips on improving gas mileage on this age.model, just out of interest. (Way back owned a 1980 (same unit style) with a 360 carbed, and NEVER got better than 14 MPG Imperial, so I'm not expecting a lot of improvement is possible but I've been out of this for a long time, so wanted to ask. If there are other good sources would appreciate that as well.
Being a 2000, you should have the fuel injected 360. Which would be a better starting base. Do the usual tune up stuff such as spark plugs, plug wires, distributor cap, air filter, oil change, and if the mileage is higher maybe look into O2 sensors as well.
