What are y誕ll getting for mileage?

I知 talking about a wc52 3/4 ton, stock Truck.
Kinda same weight and axle ratios as the civy PW?

I知 currently running off of a small temporary tank so I can see exactly what I知 using.

A short trip up and down my neighborhood hill and back and I知 using a lot!
My guess is at this rate of fuel use is I知 seeing about 2.5 MPG!

I did a quick rebuild on the Carter ETW1 stock carb.. seems to run ok. Idles a bit rough so not sure I got the float level just perfect though.

Has less power than I壇 expect for this truck with stock gearing too

I知 not new to these trucks. My fully restored wc12 1/2 ton has much more power than this climbing a grade, and surely gets much better gas mileage too!!

Any ideas where to start to gain mileage?

I知 thinking I知 limited to a carb rebuild and some tuning but will that really give me much better mileage than what I知 seeing?

Any thoughts appreciated .
