CARBURETOR DEPOSITS-ARE CLEAN THROTTLE BODIES ENOUGH?

Carburetor throttle body deposits are known to be very critical toward upsetting exhaust emissions and increasing fuel consumption. This study showed that other carburetor areas are just as important. Deposits in the idel air bleed-metering cluster and venturi sections caused sizeable increases in emission and fuel consumption. Because upper carburetor deposits were shown to be critical, additives are needed to control deposits throughout the carburetor. /GMRL/
