thats what i was figuring...
try cleaning the ideler...
mine had a huge carbon build up, cleaned it all out, and my fuel consumption is better now.
i get closer to 400 a tank, rather than the 370 i was getting before.
mine consumption is shot. need to get new plugs lead and a tune up lol

Whats the idler, where is it and how do I clean it. If your are talking about the gas system it is less that a month old so i wouldn't think it needs cleaning
