    Just bought a 94 Chevy C1500 Southern Coach Edition. Has the a rebuilt 5.7 with a holley 650 installed, new tires brakes, calipers and so on. I will need to do a little rust repair and paint hopefully that will be it. Would like to replace some of the wood trim that has been removed, but that will have to wait.

    Wow. So you are seeing 29mpg or is that what they rate it at?

    That is what I am seeing. Computer shows 28.3 on avg. That is a mix of mostly highway with some stop and go thrown in there.

    Thats great! Not heard much about that motor now the 5.0 is back, but that is cool to see good mpg out of a v6.

    PS welcome to the site!
