    Expect it to get over 30mpg on the highway if equipped with low numerical rear. That first generation Dodge Cummins was a great engine but was limited to 160hp at 2500 with the 727 juice drive. My 89 Dodge so equipped with the 307 rear would only do 75mph with standard rubber. I adjusted out the smoke control and almost wiped out the 727 TF clutches. Blew some great smoke!-)
