  I have 3.54's and 30inch tall tires in my '59 with stock 235....I pulled 
the HEI becuase of problems...but at 2800 RPMs in 4th, I get close to 15 MPG, 
and 3000 RPMs in 4th, I get 14.5mpg.  2800 is around 60 and 3000 is around 65 
if I recall.

  I think you're  normal, I don't check milage in town driving.

oletrucks is devoted to Chevy and GM trucks built between 1941 and 1959
