I have a 90 Wrangler with the 258 and a weber carb also, i get about 15 and the reason the guy with the eagle prolli gets more mpg is because the eagle has more sero dynamics then a wrangler, i mean we have a brick wall infront (the grill) and then another at the windshield, i wouldnt expect much more then that, when i bought the carb i had higher expectations.

areodinamics has something to do with it but not totally. its a 3500 pound unibody sedan with a 2:34 (i hate um) axle gears. my dakota is a 3.9 v6, 3:55 axle gear, and a loaded shortbed, and the truck is a 4000 pound fullframe truck. it gets 15 mpg city. by the way, im the guy with the eagle.

just to let you guys know that my eagle looks a lot like this one pictured.
