Anyone Running JD Red 3rd clip?

It looks like most everyone runs the JD red in the 4th position. I was just curious if anyone has tried the 3rd clip and how that affected power/mileage.

I'm riding 2,500-5,500 ft.

I am and going to move it to the fourth. Running JD stock Main size with red in 3rd. Mileage sucks 25mpg!!! I run from 600'-6000', but mainly in the 2000 range. Will run lean down low for better mileage.

You are counting from the top, right? Fourth from top means raising the needle one notch from your current setting which would make the mixture richer. This should make your mileage worse, not better.

I agree..going to the 4th clip will raise the needle and let more fuel flow.

My mileage isn't great in the 4th clip so I'm trying to see if anyone has tried the third clip, which should be a little leaner. From the responses I'm guessing not many have tried it.
