Re: 62 Ford Galaxie Fuel Consumption
The power valve opens up when you are accelerating, it's held closed by vacuum. If you have a vacuum leak or it fails (generally fails open), you'll burn rich. I believe you should have about a 20 gallon tank and depending on the gearing, you should be around 12 miles to the gallon.
