Earlier B2's.. 2.8 Carbed...mpg?
I'm trying to find a cheaper ride to drive to work. I go 270mi each way and my Chevy gets 12mpg. I have a friend that has a mid 80s B2, 4x4, with a carbed 2.8, auto, in pretty good shape inside and out. All stock. Think this would be a step up in mileage, or should i just keep looking? I havent worked out a price yet, but it would help him out, and he'd probably drop it for $250, so i'm hoping this will fit the bill. Basically, I have little Ford knowledge, so fill me in. Good motor or not? I'd like to get 20mpg if i'm going to plate and insure another vehicle...
