Hi Folks
             I don't use my 1967 P5 Mk3 alot, just a bit of summer driving,
maybe 300-400 miles per year. It seems to be very heavy on fuel , 12- 14
mpg. I'm wondering if this is common on the P5? I would have expected better
perhaps closer to 20mpg, my car is a 4 speed with a working overdrive. The
carb has been rebuilt, top end redone with all new exhaust valves, petronix
ignition system fitted. Everything is as it should be to the best of my
knowledge? any ideas???
                Regards  Ben
