To be honest on a 5 speed car that just too darn slow - you should be
cruising at about 85-90mph.

With 600 miles on my rebuilt 1275, I just figured mileage from my trip from
San Bernardino to Van Nuys and back at 70 MPH this past weekend. I
traveled 69 miles one way to the car show. It just took 3.5 gallons to
fill the tank back up. That's 39.4 miles to the gallon. That's using the
single HIF44 carb. Boy that 5th gear makes a difference too. Probably get
a little better after it breaks in.
