I need removal of California emissions for dummies!
This is such a great site I can't believe it!
I have a 1990 Ford E-250 4X4 Van with 7.5L 460EFI and E4OD tranny.
I bought the van off of eBay from a guy in California. I get the same gas mileage as a 747 jet. I get around 7-8 mpg. It has Dana 60 diffs 4:10 and 28.5 tires. I would love to remove the California emissions but I keep hearing different ways to go about it. Does anyone know for sure how to do it? Does anyone have any other tips to increase gas mileage?
I don't know the answer to the emission question, but maybe doing a tune-up (plugs, wires, distrubtor/cap, filters (fuel and air), etc... could help with gas mileage.
P.S Just a little FYI, there is a lot of info on the FTE Site, and a lot of intelligent people on the different forum pages, maybe posting in the 460 engine forum, somebody could further help on both gas mileage and emission questions.
