Hi, David -

I have only checked the mileage on my BJ8 a few times, but the best I have
ever got is about 22 mpg on long open-road top-down cruises with stock
engine/head/HD8 carbs and tuning by Colortune.

  Hi List,
  I've been poking around in the many books and article reprints about
  that I have, and can find next to nothing about what kind of gas mileage
  various Healeys get.
  I guess the lack of information is an indication that gas mileage for these
  cars is irrelevant, and misses the point completely, in that they are a
  to drive regardless of whatever the fuel economy is..
  Still, I have been wondering how the mileage compares between the different
  models, engines and carb setups. I recall that my car got about 18 mpg with
  the twin HDs before restoration and conversion back to the correct triple
  Also wondered how much better it is with the 4 cylinder engines than with
  I have not put enough miles on it since, to see if there is a significant
  mileage / range difference now.

  Would listers mind indicating their carb / engine / modifications (if any)
  condition, and the city/hwy mileage and range? -Just curious.
