Well as above. with lower compression can MPG be a lot lower.

Any advice great, cheers.


There are also more side issues to make MPG reduce
With a worn`engine`, piston/rings/crank etc, you also have problems with the possibility of worn valves/guides etc and dependent on carb selection,they can also add to the problem.eg Su`s jet wear for one
So if you have a considerably aged car then totting up all add on issues you are as well refurbishing most of the running parts to get the optimum on fuel consumption/economy
....and Ibuprofen for a worn body when all completed!
