El camino

Asked by Young_LoMein Jan 05, 2019 at 04:41 AM about the 1966 Chevrolet El Camino Base

Question type: General

It’s about that time where my parent Is
thinking about my high school car and i was
thinking about an 66 el Camino but thought
about the gas mileage and would like to
know if they’re a specific model that has a
good gas mileage considering it’s a v8 or v6

1 Answer


There wasn't a V6 used in the ElCamino back then, it was a straight 6 and a V8, and fuel mileage was not much of a concern back then so there wasn't much of a gain between 6 cylinder and the V8 due to rear end gear ratios. You didn't start noticing any real fuel mileage until the early 70's.
