noooooo... loose vacuum line = 26 mpg

title says it all....

my car ran crappy for the last two days... wouldnt drive slow when cold, lurch when downshifting or accelerating...poor throttle response and feeling low on power yet almost no throttle was required at cruise...

after two days driving the fuelneedle was going alarmingly low...i can guess my milage pretty well from the dile and this was way of what i should have expected

closer inspection to see if the choke was opperating right showed a rather big vacuum line going from the carb to the aircleaner had come off...

result... 9l/100km... fortunately i'd just fueled up so i can try to make the best of it, but milage is going to be bad for this tank...

maybe i'll refill tomorrow... should show if things are back to normal...

i adjusted the carb a bit while i was at it so i hope that helps too
