what type of milage do you get from your rigs with a 300 or 460 in a Bronco. I can have either engine for my 79 and just curious. I have 35" tires 4.10 gears 4 speed transmission.
Thanks

I've got a magazine article where they pulled the 300 to put in the 460. 460 got better milage, if you can call 12mpg hwy better :) Can't see it being much worse, Especially after you add EFI. Carbs are for old lawn mowers and model airplanes :)

Go with the 460 or you'll be kicking each yourself in the long run. No offence but as far as I'm concerned if your worried about MPG then you should go get yourself a pontiac firefly. I am not positive on the numbers but the 460 has much more torque and power then the 300, and for your money you'd be better off with the big engine to turn your tires. Between the 460 the 351w the 302 and the 300 there is only a matter of 2 or 3 mpg but a huge difference between power. Go Big or Go home!
