Re: miles per tank question
when mine was stock, (well it had 215/75 's on it) it would get 24-26 mpg with the stock carb.
with the 215/75's on it, the speedometer and odometer were dead on according to a police officer friend of mine
when the air/fuel sensor went in the carb and the heated ?? sensor inside the carb went, my gas mileage
went to 16mpg.
also when the vaccume lines, some of them got a leak, it killed gas mileage, particularly the one right off the
back of the black air intake just where it bolts to the carb, that one really killled the gas mileage when it got
might want to check your vaccume lines, the distributor cap and rotor (those like to collect a lot of crap
on the contacts)
if you have good compression on your cylinders, you should be hitting 25mpg...
