Exclamation Fuel Economy!!

Hi from New Zealand!!

I have a '78 W123 250 auto. Has anybody got any clues as to how to tune these things with the HUGE carburetor they have!

Any clues would be most welcome.

I used to own a 1971 250 auto with dual Zenith carbs - do you have one or two carbs? If you have two I can share some of my experience...they were a lot of *fun*...
