J20 Fuel economy?

Hey guys, first post here, ive got a 1989 suzuki samurai, that someone wants to trade me for a 1982 j20 truck, looks to be in ok shape.

It has the 360 motor with a 2 barrel carb.
4 spd manual tranny
Im just wondering, with this big engine, but small carbuerator, what kind of fuel economy i could expect?

Does anyone have a similar truck? how is it on gas?

Thanks BJ, i know its not going to be a civic, the seller told me he gets 20mpg with the 2bbl carb... seemed a little off to me.

Maybe with 4 of the cylinders not firing
