Here is something you small engine guys can think about; People think a small engine gets better mileage, and big engines are gas hogs. that is not
always true. Follow me here...a small 4 cylinder in a small car works 100% of it's available power to drive the car with it's human load, while a
V-8 uses maybe 1/2 of it's available power to do the same thing. The car companies are lying to you, they say cars gets 32-40 miles per gallon,
right? One of my first cars was a 1960 Plymouth Valiant, it had a slant 6 three speed manual, and it got 48 mpg every day. I have have many cars,
including "hot rods" that got 35 mpg, and some that got better. It's all in the ignition.
Modern cars do not have high performance ignition systems on them, that have factory ignitions, read that cheap parts, and what you need is a digital
system, like the ones made by MSD, coupled with a high output coil, 42,000 V or better, low resistance good quality primary wires, and a good set of
plugs will do wonders for any vehicle. Breathing is crucial too, a good, free flowing induction is paramount. there are many brands of air cleaners.
