Question

I am new to this board and I just inherited an 84 Camaro from my uncle. Its got a 2.8l carbed engine. Right now the check engine light goes on for about a minute and goes off on the freeways. The mileage is terrible, I am getting 14mpg. Plus I can smell gas fumes inside the car. Is 14mpg normal on this type of engine? Where else can I look at?

lsc224 WELCOME to one of the BEST sites on the web. The best thing to do is to get someone that you trust to hook up a scan tool to your Camaro and see what codes are present in the computer and go from there.

If you have no fear, you're not going as fast as you could.
