Will, your mileage (23 mpg city) sounds about right. I get between 22 and 25 mpg (US). Sometimes around 26 mpg for a highway trip. You occasionally hear about people that claim much higher numbers, but I suspect that they are either measuring with an uncalibrated oedometer or are running way too lean.

Your 23 miles/US Gal sounds pretty normal.

Here is a link to a chart of my mpg for Sophy (66 stock dual carbs).


As you can see, my warm weather average is just a bit over your 23 at 24.3 mpg. You will also see pretty wide fluctations tank to tank with a high near 29 and a low close to 14. really depends on type of driving, weather, filling variation, grade (slope of ground) of filling station, lots of things.

Best to calculate fuel economy over several tanks of fuel to get a decent average.
