    Reworked my whole car (70 Z) a couple years ago looking for an honest 300 hp and 25 mpg. Best so far is 24.3 on back to back tank fillups. But it run only on premium, not a big price adder these days though. Need a good set of current design heads, should do it.

    Didn't buy it for gas milage ;) I drive it in town mostly so I'm sure it's not good. I am interested to see what it gets later this summer when I drive it 2 hours to my old hometown for cruise night. Better start saving my pennies :)

    After installing my cam and breaking it in for a half hour. I took it down the street (about a mile) I burned an 1/8 tank. Estimated 8 miles per gallon. This being on a tired 350.

    A mild 355 with TH350 tranny and 3.42 gears = 10-12mpg
    The worst I've ever had was 8mpg when I was 16 and decided to dump a tank at WOT.

    mpg doesnt matter if you love to drive your camaro

    I am getting about 10 mpg or so. im not too worried about the mpgs because my camaro is so much fun to drive. I am running headers, msd ignition, edelbrock preformer rpm intake manifold, holley street avenger carb, on a 350 with a turbo 350 trans.

    I don't know the intent of the thread starter but I suspect that most of us don't care what these cars get for MPG - they're hobby cars after all - and know only as a matter of idle curiosity.

    If one wanted MPG out of a 2nd gen then one would most certainly take a different direction in high tech mods...one that wouldn't involve BB's, lumpy cams or deep gears:D

    Seems like I detect a bit of attitude for asking such a question ??? :cool: I was just posting a question out of "curiousity", collecting some data for just plain old information sake. I am quite aware that most people either build their 2nd gens up for performance or they keep them stock and some use as daily drivers or any where in between. I am not some ignorant fool posting for no reason....just wanted to get a feel if most peoples Camaros were modified, slightly modified or stock and just was curious on what kind of MPG those people got....nothing more.
