is that around town or highway milage, i get 330-350 around town and 550-570klm on the highway, thats with 4.11 diff gears and 3200rpm non lock up convertor. have some one check the condition of your oxygen sensors and all earth points , battery , block etc make sure you check the earth wire on the last intake manifold bolt near the fire wall on the passenger side this is the oxygen sensor earth. a bad earth will make the computer think the engine is lean so it will try to compensate.

Re: eb 5.0 runnin rich

If it's as stoke as you say, then that's bad.

Put the car on the rollers and have the gasses checked.
How do the plug's look?
