I have a mild 351C with an impco 425 and B2 setup, gas tank has 90 Lt usable and I'm lucky to get 200KM from a tank. should I expect more or is this as good as it gets. :(

I remember my mum getting an average of 300 to 350 a 65lt tank in her old Xd with a 351 clevo, c10 & 9inch diff. That was with an impco 300a setup.

Sounds like it's time for a tuneup!

Cheers
