I actually bought a 1992 Ford van with what I thought..and the salesman told me...was a 351 in it. It sure seemed like a lot of motor and didn't get very good mileage...about 10-12 mpg. I looked up the VIN (of course AFTER I bought it) and found it had a 460 in it. It was a beast. It would get the same mileage no matter what; up hill, down hill, highway, city, towing, air on, air off. Didn't matter. it just took that much gas to make the thing run.
But I learned my lesson to do better research on vehicle purchases and never believe a salesman.
