About 10-12 mpg. I'd get 9-10 towing my toyota on a flatbed, usually 11-12 empty.

They are like the diesels in that they will eat up the automatic tranmissions.

One of the things is that if you have a serious engine issue, there aren't a ton of parts out there. Towed fine, the rest of the truck fell apart around mine, though. Michigan is very tough on those era dodges.

The intake gaskets on those motors dont have a good rap.

Mpg' s are better than a 454 and 460 but that's about it.
