One guy over on the Classic Celica forum claims the stock carb is only good for 18-24 MPG.


I'm getting like 12 with my 72.

What are some things I can do to the carb so I can get better economy?

rebuild it... or have it rebuilt...

i personally dont have a 1st, 2nd or 3rd gen celica but i know this from workin on my dads old 65 mustang, it used to only get about 12 mpg also, then had the carb rebuilt and now he gets about 15 to 19 mpg... not a big difference but every lil bit counts
