Questions?? burnig threw tank of gas in like 8 mins?

i got out my tuck today because all the snow melted and its above 60. i had gotten it out when it was below 30 and ran fine. But a got it started it was really rich and alot of smoke. so i tried to lean it. i had to lean it in like 2 1/4 turns to get it to stop bogging but i fill the tank the whole way up and it burns through in like 8 mins. (normally get 16+).

Default Ahhh Mileage

I've had less luck with mileage these days. I used to get 10 minutes out of a p5 with no restrictor at all in it, now my newer p5 gets like 8 minutes, oh well. It depends on the altitude, and track, and and and so many things, over the years I've realized that screw it, it does what it does on that day. I don't mind pitting at 7 minutes just to be safe, in most races that's fine anyway. I run an 8mm restrictor now and not about to change to a smaller one, no way, or change my pipe, or header. I might change fuel to Byrons just because it's sold locally and it has a great reputation....I want a p5xls houston tuned, and see what happens to top end and run time.....
