v-8 are full of it. Tell them to prove it.
Come see for yourself. My '95 4x4 Supercab with a 302 and 3.31s breaks over 20 on almost every highway trip I take.
Of course it rarely did before the ignition upgrade.
With the right gears, I've seen other 4x4s get over 20 on the highway.
The 351s use more gas than the 302s but not a lot more. I have seen some smog era 351s that consumed fuel in a very bad way. Don't go to the 351 looking for better economy. If you can afford to lose a little mileage and want the extra torque, the 351 is a good choice.
