Abysmal Mileage...

Looking for carb adjustments to provide better mileage for Sluggo. I rebuilt the carb (MC4150) a few months ago and it ran, but poorly. My mechanic sent out out to a carb guy he knows who corrected my freshman errors. Got it back and it ran fine and still does but I'm down to 7MPG .

I know I can do better and it did before my attempt to rebuilt the carb. I used to enjoy 11-12mpg. The thing runs fine but I'm going to admit my newbie-ness and plead for guidance on what to turn, when to turn it and which way to turn it.

Thanks...



Frank
