12 miles to the gallon is about average for a 8 cycl. It's all in the way you drive it, heavy foot = 12 miles to the gallon. However, there are a few things you can do to get better mileage. A clean Air Filter is a must, as a dirty or clogged air filter is the fastest way to chew up the gas. Next, make sure your spark plugs are in good condition. And , not so heavy on the foot. Also, just as a last check, make sure there are no fuel leaks, from any hoses or clamps, or leaking from tank, just an after thought.
Good Luck

How many miles do u get for a full tank of gas on a v8


It just depends on your tank size. You probably get about 15 -18 miles per gallon. 13 gallon tank would be around 200 miles. 15 gallon tank around 232 miles.

I have a FORD Econolinen 1993. When I drive he abuse 45 ltres of gaz on 100 miles . Is this normale ?


on normal that trk should be around 6-7 gallons used per one hundred miles drove. i based that at 15 mpg. now that is also based on a V8 engine. now 1 gallon of gas is 3.78541178 liters which totals 12 galons of gas to 45.42494136 liters. This would mean that it took 12 gallons of gas to travel 100 miles which totals 8.3333333333 mpg. not as good as i would have thought. 8 miles per gallon (mpg) hell that engine must be a big block 460. If it is that big cubic inch i could understand but any other motor should do better mpg than 8.3. so i agree that is not normal, tune up, or look for fuel leak in the fuel supply or( feed ) line. From the tank to the motor. This must be a canadian truck yes? well hope for the best or trade that guzzler in for a new breed. stay warm!

The heat won't come on in my 97 t-bird. what's wrong with it?


I just had this problem with my 97 TBird.  My local repair shop replaced the blower motor. Parts and labor total was less than 160.00.  I figure It'll last me for another 185,000 miles.

1994 t-bird lx 3.8 car start for a sec. but stalls


Could be bad gas ( underground water seepage is more common in the winter ). You need to verify that your getting fuel to the rails and that the fuel is OK. Next, check your fuel regulator at the fuel rail. Sometimes when they go bad they will let too much fuel go past and the injectors will flood out. This happened to a Bronco I had. Check the fuel pressure at the rail. Sounds like fuel related, not spark.
