    While I tend to agree with Keith, carbs are so much more simplistic.

    I just don't see them being as efficient as EFI.

    Though I stopped buying for MPG's years ago..

    I would also suspect that a crab setup would kill mpg's,

    compared to a well tuned EFI making the same power on the same engine/displacement.

    Sadly now demodded :(

    Back in the mid 80's I scored a 58 Vette dual quad intake with 2 Carter 500's for swapping a 4V and Holley 600 onto a customers car. Thing looked and worked awsome. I ended up selling it (I had the original carb's for it as well) at Pomona for $1,000. I wish I still had it...
