Would make a really cool work truck or a run-around. I agree with ya on putting in a Dakota though, especially for a better hp/lbs ratio. I don't think I could look at that blue oval.):h

I have communicated with the guy that is doing that. He said that at 73 mph, it got 27 mpg. He also drove a long distance at 56 mph to deliver a bus and it got 38 mpg at that speed. I have plans to put one in a half ton Chevy one of these days. The Chevy will be easier because these engines came in some P-30 stepvans, and they already have GM bellhousing adapters and flexplates on them. I think that at 65 mph, it could be capable of 30 mpg. They are only rated at 100 hp, but with lp it should do 150, which would probably have decent performance.
