    Are you sure your odometer is correct?  Have you tested it (by comparing the odometer readings to the mileposts on your nearest Interstate highway)?  I would try verifying that for starters, so you're sure you're dealing with the right numbers.

    I have gotten as high as 18, and most often 16 on my '50 C8 3spd w/ OD (Supermatic rear), 12 seems a bit low to me.
