Even with that clarification - I'll bet not.

And *certainly* not if you expect to remain in
emissions compliance!

I once had a '78 Ford Pinto, 2.4 L engine and in
1980 or so I equipped it with a mileage computer
sold though Sears. This device included a bonafide
fuel-flow meter and an adaper that went in-line
with the speedometer.

I had purchased an assortment of jets from the
dealer and also installed an aftermarket intake
manifold from Offenhauser - it was a dual-plane
style that separate the two paths, primary and
secondary barrels, from the carb to the intake

Did *wonders* for low-speed torque and cured
the usual tendency for this engine to stall
when letting the clutch out (otherwise some
'gas' was required - this was a 4-speed stick).

I played around some and couldn't do that much
to improve the gas mileage ... but that manifold
did wonders for the stalling I described!
