I recently had the Carb rebuilt on my old 72 Corona Mark II wagon. And although it's running much better, I notice that I'm only getting on average about 12-13 mpg fuel economy.

I'd expect it to be more near 20-25? The dude I bought it from a month or so back was a garage tinkerer and "tuned" it up himself.

Thanks!

Have it looked at by another specialist?

I second that. My corolla is getting 20mpg from my own rebuilt carb. I too will be seeing a specialist.
