Anyone have any suggestions for improving gas mileage on an old 302? I'm thinking all the run of the mill stuff like upgrade the air filter, better flow through the exhaust, tune up with top notch plugs and wires. Then, of course, check all the normal stuff like tire pressure and whatever. Run a carb cleaner and all that jazz.

Looking for some info, my son has the above and is getting lousy fuel mileage and was wondering if it was normal. he is averaging around 8-9 MPG. it a 4x4, but man that is lousy for a 302.
