I think there are a lot of us more concerned with smiles per gallon than miles per gallon.
Fred,Don't check your LaSalle's gas mileage. Love the car for all of it's beauty. Doug Houston's post gives you all the info you need to know about 39's and early '40's. I know my '39 60S, once only, averaged 16 on a tour. Usually, it's between 12 and 14.
All mileage figures are quoted in Imperial Gallons. There are 4.55 litres in an Imperial Gallon as opposed to 3.79 in a US gallon. Mike
So, if I did my math correctly:My '75 Coupe used to get 23MPG. Is really 19.16mpgNow my '70 with the 472 will pull 20MPG Is really 16.66mpgLast weekend on a trip I averaged 21MPG with my '89 Brougham Is really 17.49mpgOn a straight highway run it will pull 25MPG. which is 20.82mpgMy 1988 Eldorado with the 4.5 will run 33MPG on a highway run, and averages 29MPG over the same trip 27.49mpg, 24.16mpg
I think my 1954 Cadillac 62 is doing quite a bit better than that ... but I've been afraid to check it ... I'm just happy to see actual mileage being quoted on this thread ... instead of just wishful thinking that you usually see bragged about ...
