Low fuel millage, I am only geting about 5mpg. Looking for ideas on how to tune it. Oh, and I think the secondaries are cracked open at idle. When I spray carb cleaner at the secondaries she will stumble.

Nope, Asheville NC. One thought I had is that it was setup for low alt.

Wonder if I should just put a tow bar on it, pull it with the truck. and find a old mustang to put the 460 in
