    RE: bigger fuel tank

    you could have been running rich. if you tune the car right, you could probably get like 12 - 15 minutes to a tank.

    RE: bigger fuel tank

    i got a new os .18 engine and i was told to run it rich due to running 20% fuel for break in. also if i lean it out it boggs down when i gas it from an idle to half throttle. with it set like i have there is no hesitation when i gas it.

    Not sure how that carb adjusts, but you need to tweak both needles and the idle to get a happy medium. Sounds like your HSN was turned out too much, in turn flooding your LSN[X(]
