That’s a nice looking cb. Your grandparents took really good care of it. Interested in hearing the story behind it. Is gas really $3.36 over there? That’s literally a dollar more then what I’m paying here in Florida.

Yeah I really do love it but itís got its issues it is almost a 30 year old car!!!!!
Iím technically the third owner of the car but it was all family members who owned them and the second owner used the car very rarely maybe once a week max!
I will explain the sorry eventually itís actually a lot the car has been in two accidents 🥺 which most people probably wonít believe! Since it looks so good!

Yes Fresno gas is super expensive I only run chevron 91 octane in my CB it runs good and gives me the most gas mileage around 270 miles to a tank!

270 a tank isn’t much. That averages about 16 mpg you should be in the part of 20-23 unless you romp on it all over the place. Have you replace the fuel filter, air filter, and spark plugs. I remember before I was boosted I was getting 25mpg. Might be something to look into. Since your doing upkeep maintenance. But you have a solid plan and glad to see your fixing all the maintenance issues before heavily modding it.

I completely understand not doing much to your DD, i learned it’s not smart to boost a stock motor and it be your only mode of transportation. I was some nights trying to knock out motor swaps all night to be able to make it to school or work the next day.

I do romp on it often it’s just so much fun to drive but I’ve found if I drive it really easy I don’t get any better gas mileage like the Max I can get is 275
I have replaced spark plugs, wires, and air filter recently but haven’t done the fuel filter did you replace yours and did you see improvement? Or?

Don’t get me wrong it would be nice to have a boosted motor but right now I have other priorities! Once I finish all my upkeep I will mod to the moon for reliability I just don’t like being stuck on the side of the road my triple a is going to get more expensive ��

I forgot to ask if you were calculating the average mpg I though I get around 19 because I normally fill up when the gas light comes on and doesn’t it come on at 14 gallons max size of the tank is 17 gallons right?

Sixteen mpg is way off what it should be. My '91 is dead stock, a tad low on compression, has almost 400k miles and can still get near 28mpg if I pussyfoot around. It sounds like:
a.) you need to keep your foot out of it, or
b.) your motor needs some major attention

From your description of the motor being mostly stock, I'm thinking you need to back off the throttle. These cars are more than capable of getting you where you need to go quick enough. Resist the feeling that you need to keep up with the stoplight drag racers going to work every morning.

Yeah everyone’s roasting me for my mileage but I mean in all honesty does anyone live in California ever gas is different and I still don’t under stand how you guys are getting 16 mpg I fill my tank up when the light comes on and i normally only fill up a little under 15 gallons till it’s full which is 18 mpg I know that’s still way under but I’ve tried driving like a grandma for a whole tank and it serious doesn’t make much of a difference for my car

I’ll keep trying I’m going to try to do a tune up with spark plugs and fuel filter soon when I do my breaks and I will let y’all know if that makes a difference

My motor is extremely strong so maybe you’re right with keeping my foot off the gas as much I’ll try it!

I’ve never seems higher than 22 mpg with my car unfortunately!

I was getting nearly 30mpg with sticky tires and an H22 swap. There’s definitely something up!

It’s not that we are roasting you. You will find that, that doesn’t exist on this forum. We have just been around these cars for some 3 decades but most at least 10-15 years. So when we see something that isn’t right, we want to help you resolve it so you get the best you can with the your cb.

The light comes up with about a gallon to gallon and half of fuel left. Mine usually was about 50 miles left. So that makes sense if you fill up at the light. That should be able 14 gals.
I would be curious if you did drive like a “grandma” would you would get. But I didn’t baby mine and I would never go lower then 25mpg.

Along with replacing fuel filter, spark plugs, I would also run some sea foam in there and clear out all the carbon. There is a diy on here in the diy section. But it’s pretty easy, I did 1/3 of it in my gas, 1/3 of it in my oil and 1/3 of it in vacuum. Once it sucked up all the sea foam I would then turn off the motor after it ran 1-2 mins. Let it sit for a good 10-15mins then go for a drive. Beware when you first start it up and drive it after you sea foam, you will create a white smoke screen for about 5mins of driving. (This is normal). I would do that just before your next oil change. Maybe 50-100 miles before it. Also only have a couple gallons of fuel in the tank. Not a full tank.

Just read the directions on the can to verify y’all this. I haven’t done it in years.

I suggest keeping a log of miles driven and fuel used so you know exactly what you're getting. You sure you're putting 15 gallons in? The only time I ever managed to put 15 in one of my Accords was once when I ran my wagon dry.

Like others above, my 90 (F22A6 w/ H23 intake, Prelude manual trans) gets 25 all day long in mostly city driving these days. It will still get 30-32 on the highway.

In addition to suggestions above, make sure your tires are inflated properly, brakes aren't dragging, proper alignment.

This looks a pretty well maintained CB. It should be a good platform for your future mod plans.
