1973 ford f100 has used 30 dollars worth of gas just in neighborhood trips

At today's gas prices, if you reside in the USA, that's only about 10 gallons of gas. If you've got a carbureted v8 engine in a 38 year old truck, you should be getting around 11 mpg. Probably less with stop and go driving. You did not say how many miles you drove for the 30 dollars worth of gas, but if you got a hundred miles, that would be just about right.

At 34psi I was getting 25 to 30 mpg. Since changed psi to 30 am getting 17 to 20 mpg. Had a full service and cambelt change, new brake discs & pads when I bought it. Has had new fan motor for cool air...

if you are talking about your tire pressures then yes you will get less MPG with a lower pressure as more tread will be touching the road and that equates to more resistance, however the less tread touching the road means your braking won't be as good, having a higher tire pressure will also wear out your tires quicker, you will also use more petrol if you have your AC turned on,

Have you changed the fuel filter? I know it sounds weird but a plugged filter will make a truck use more gas. The computer tries to compensate for less fuel by commanding the injectors to open longer. Also a plugged filter will cause excess back pressure on the fuel pump making it loud.. Good Luck.
