Re: Packard MPG

I have a framed ad that came with my 49 deluxe eight (23rd series), called "HOW WOULD YOUR CAR RATE ON THIS PACKARD CHART?." They surveyed 1000 Golden Ann. Packard owners with 135 horsepower with overdrive. This was the result:

22 mpg and over 7%
21 9%
20 17%
19 24%
18 22%
17 12%
16 6%
15 and under 3%

They noted that the most frequent response was 19 mpg and 33% got more then 19 mpg. Interesting stuff! Take it for what its worth.

If you look at the owner's registry, you'll see I have the same model in the same color. I thought the color was called "Grenedier Maroon" or something like that. Well anyway, I am real new to this too,(bought my car in July , 07) so i'm learning from all your replies and questions.

A big thanks to BIG KEV for posting the '48 owner's manual. I have a '49 - 23 series, and I could not figure out how to reset the trip odometer, thought it was broke or froze up after almost 60 years. After reading the manual online, I got it to work today! With the car not running, I pushed it up and turned clockwise and it began to increase the setting. I tried it again with the car slowly moving, and it quickly reset to zero with no trouble. Thanks again to BIG KEV and all you guys (or Packard experts of either gender)for all the help.
