Re: Samurai gas mileage at 13 mpg - help!
You noted that your zuk (suzuki) was "modified for off road stuff", this could mean a lot of different things. You probably want to check the speedo (speedometer) like Harry suggested. If it does have larger tires, this can be a lot of your problems, "based on my experiences"!!! The new motor is hard to say. I have seen some of the most worthless motors cleaned up, painted and resold as rebuilt motors. I hope this is not your case. There are many variables to decide your problem. If it is indeed your original motor with that being the original miles, a windy day and larger tires will definately knock your milage down to that.. NOTE: this is based on my experiences and all my zuks have carbs. i am not a zuk guru by any means. just what i have experienced. Yes, they do make hard tops for it. I have see them in the past, but don't remember where right off the top of my head. Anybody else know where to get them???
Don't know what else to suggest without knowing more about your rig. Let us know what you find out about it, maybe someone can help you some more.
Do unto others as you want done to you!
If you pack it in, pack it out!
