That's pretty cool. I'm not sure that your test was very accurate though. That is an incredibly short distance to conduct a test.

You should conduct the same test again, but over 300-500 km.

I just found this video for a Saginaw type pump like my 760: Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0e7MlIPZt4). Skip to about 1:30 for the good info. At 2:00 the guy pulls out the pressure regulator.

I think re-torquing the head bolts would be a great idea! That is the first thing I would try to do. If you were willing to spend a few dollars, then I'd replace all the bolts (one at a time)....

That is disappointing! I think that is about 33 miles/gallon. I was hoping you were getting above 40 mpg (1 liter/ 17 km).

Did you notice a change in fuel economy after the ratio change?
