Ok finally got to take the girl out for a long ride. At 50+ miles I filled up and checked mpg. Something wrong with math. Showed 4mpg. So took another 50+ ride and refilled. Now 11mpg. There was a problem with the brakes tightening up but was wondering am I close to average on mpg. Starts beautifully and idles a 800 nicely. Found what I feel is the sweet spot but maybe I'm off on something.
How did you end up with 3200 lbs curb wt on a 2A? Seems WAY on the heavy side..
My 2A will run a consistent 20-22 mpg at 45 mph with OD, pushing it to 50 mph and it drops off to 16-20 mpg. Same situation without OD, 14-16 at 40-45 mph, drops off to 10-12 if pushing beyond 45 mph. This is on mn. roads.
Some Previous owner rebuilt body floor pan using 1/8" diamond plate and along with front brush guard and 9500 winch on front plus the fold down rear tire carrier and the 5 237/75/15 wheels and tires including the tools and me thats what she weighed at the truck scsle where i work.
