When vacuum advance is connected to ported vacuum does it add that timing at all at WOT? I was told that it cannot add timing at WOT because there is not any vacuum but I would think it could pull it a little, so whats the answer?

No vacuum advance does not add timing at WOT. I run direct manifold vac to adv unit for more timing at idle and works well for my cam and improved idle characteristics. SS

Doesn't matter where it's connected at WOT - there's no vacuum there; only matters at idle. [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]

And about mpg at idle and low RPM cruising speeds? which set up gives better mpg?

Full manifold vacuum to your vacuum advance will improve the idle efficiency. At cruise the ported vacuum signal is equal to the manifold vacuum signal so it's a tossup.
