Im drinkin gas like an 8cyl!!

I dont know what the deal is.I use to be able to get 220mi out of a full tank,now I can only get 155mi.My carb was rebuilt about 6mo ago and the fuel filter is new.My Valves have always had the slight tapping even when I was getting good mileage.Any ideas??

the vaccume line that comes off the air cleaner right where it bolts up to the carb...

might want to check that... when my rig dropped down to 12 mpg that was the culprit....
changed it and was back to 28mpg...

while you are at it, just change all your vaccume lines.. they probably could use it...

If you do not expect the unexpected, you will not find it.

Could very likely be a bad catalytic converter too.

Yeah,I didnt think about the Cat con.That might be it because I use to backfire when deccelerating,then suddenly it stopped and thats when I thought I had visited the gas station a bit to much lately.
Thanks
