85PowerRamCustom is on a distinguished road

First gen Power Rams are pretty crappy on gas milage. I have an 85 250 with the 318 and stock two barrle carb and it gets about 8-10 mpg. The other thing is, if you have a 727, you dont have an overdrive, which means alot of towing power, but you suffer in gas usage. There's a slight power difference between your and mine, and mine has more weight, but mine sits about 250 miles before i fuel up on a quarter tank. It's just the pakage on the truck.
