I'm sorry,but nearly all of the report dates were 30 years ago! We didn't have fuel injection!Most cars and trucks ran on some kind of points systems ,computers were still in their infantsy .Things haven't changed much, keep your motor well tuned ,tires well inflated,and keep your foot out of it most of the time you'll get good fuel mileage...Ogre
