Default 302 Guys - Whats your MPG?

The MPG on my 302 - stock - with 3.55 gears and an AOD - is a crappy 11mpg in town on a good tank. I haven't had mine on the highway yet to know what its highway mpg is.

What are you 302 guys getting? In town and highway, and what, if any, mods have you done?

I am getting around 12-13 highway mileage going about 60 with a ext cab long bed, and my truck could deffinatly use a tune up, I have straight pipes, thats about it, the first cat is gutted, the second cat was removed, there is a short section of 3 inch pipe that goes from the first cat to the second cat, and from there it goes from 3 inch to 2 1/4 pipe with the big gap welded up and no muffler side dumped with a 7 inch tip before the rear tire, but it will soon be 3 inch all the way to a turn down tip

My short bed extended cab gets 12-13. Sometimes less depending on my mood (pissed and flooring haha). Only mod I have is flowmaster 40 single in dual out muffler and no cat. My highway isn't much better because I tend to run between 80-85 (I hate interstates and try to get off em quicker)

14-15 mpg : 64 miles daily with 50% at 55-60mph, 25% at 65-70mph and 25% mixed city.
SWAG on percentages of course.
