From Kentucky to Texas you're going downhill, so you will get a little better mpg going there than getting back

Really, you have the same setup as me with a carb'd 460 and C6 3-speed tranny. I got 6.5 mpg last trip of 400 miles. Keep it down around 55 mph and dont pass people ..

It has been stated over and over the faster you drive the more fuel you use. Slow down and enjoy the scenery and go a little farther on a gallon of gas.

I get 7 MPG on regular gas but recently was advised to upgrade the gas from regula to 92 octain to stop a check engine light coming on while towing a toad. The dealer said my 8.1 needed more help so I upgraded the octain to 92. I have used a 1/2 tankful so far and no check engine light returned...keeping my fingers crossed. I also bought a code reader so I dont need someone to read my codes or clear them.
