Running too rich?

Get a bigger tank and a Edelbrook carb for better mileage and easier starting.:thumbsup:

Mine with a stage 2 and a can and uncorked does roughly 85 miles with gearing at 14/46 i am way undergeared 15/47 it should go a bit further.

Dkxr600 it is probably very tight being new and will settle soon,be sure to punish it and have a quick motor though.

Fuel economy... The price you pay for power.

A 454 Chevy doesn't get good fuel milage, so don't expect a 650R to do good either.

I can burn my 3.2 IMS dry in under 60 miles without trying to hard. I can run the stocker to 80 miles if I try real hard and be easy on it. It is all in how you want to play with the power!
