Subject: Re: Gas Mileage - WHY REDUCED...

Had exactly that problem recently on my 87 9000 turbo. Also noticed black smoke coming from the tail and bucking on hard acceleration. All this from running too rich. My mechanic loaned me a known-good air mass meter. Made an AMAZING difference: smooth acceleration right to 5500, no black smoke, no bucking on hard acceleration, and best of all, 15% better fuel mileage. Will have paid for itself pretty soon... Got one used from Also qot a quote from Good luck. -chris ault Ottawa.
