Mikuni carburettors have DFCO!!

Hi folks,

Discovered an interesting little factoid, the mikuni carburettors used on many mitsubishi applications in the early to late 80s have an air passage that is opened up on deceleration to allow fuel cut. Typically they were used on mitsu astron applications but may have been used with other and non-mitsu motors.

That's all, just figured folks would be interested to know that some non-fuel injected vehicles have fuel cut too.

Road Warrior

I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
