You can expect to get approximately 18 miles per gallon from your 1965 Chevrolet Malibu. The gas mileage will be lower if the Malibu has been upgraded to todays emissions standards.

I've got a better question, why is this question in the Chevy venture forum ?

You will need a one inch socket and ratchet. You also might need a mallet. The socket and ratchet will be needed to remove the lower control arm nuts. The mallet might be needed to loosen the control arm.
