    Josh..I have to wonder what type of foreign substances Ed was inhaling when he was getting 24mpgs...Haha
    That's way more than I've ever heard from a yoyo...
    But I will admit that the best mpgs I ever got in any of the 3 trucks I've drove out west was in Colorado ,and was at higher elevations

    Mongo I was the one that got 19 mpg, and I did it three out of five tanks of gas driving from Missouri to Wisconsin cruising at 60 mph. It’s legit, a handful of other guys have too!
    I made the image on a program thru a friend and sent it in to stickermule.com three days later I got em! Pretty cool!! I usually toss in a few stickers when I sell scout parts.... guys and gals seem to like that.

    MPG rating possibly achieved after vehicle was pushed out of the back of a jumbo jet after reaching peak altitude. I'm certain, for the OEM AMC inline 6 power plant that IH had installed in my 800, this would have been necessary, both to exceed 9-10 MPG, and also to obtain a maximum speed in excess of its previous top speed of 62 MPH (down hill).

    Jerry does your 232 really only get 10 mpg?
    In my blue scout I average 14 and have seen 15-16 and even an occasional 17.

    Darn it, I was going to post a pic of my new paint job. But if I do, I suspect someone here would confuse a dash pad with a chicken and a run with some chicken scat!

    Back when it was still inline 6 powered, maybe 10 MPG on good days, usually it was closer to 8.

    I know its not everyone's favorite swap, but there's a reason I'm still ecstatic about my ability to get 20 MPG plus, while driving nice, after my drive train swap. My Scout came from IH, Powered by AMC, not IH, so you'd think it wouldn't torque off as many people as it does.

    Long term, I'd still like to have diesel power, but I have zero regrets from my LS swap, and would not hesitate to recommend it as an option to others, for a multitude of reasons that are in addition to the possibility of great fuel mileage from a vehicle with the aerodynamics of a brick.

    Sh!t, I can't even keep track of whose's thread I'm posting on anymore..... Anyways, my (latest) chicken-related post was designed to be more comical in nature, but I did get around to trying my luck with some melting powder paint look alike stuff yesterday (unlike some other member who has threatened to do so but thus far any progress must have gotten lost in the cloud)!

    I can’t tell how the powder coat looks, but the hub cap sure looks nice!

    When I find my own build thread and finish two more rims, I'll let you scrutinize them Josh. The wheel cover is the first one I grabbed out of the "daily driver" box!

    Ed you do such nice finishing work on metal I’d love to see you repair some dents on the factory hub caps and polish them out in a montage
