"carburator" is a French irregular verb that means "leave well-enough alone". Thank goodness for EFI.

Having an older motor home, I am going to assume you have no payments. (My opinion) Don't go off and buy one where you have monthly payments only to add to add 4 or so more MPG. It is not worth it and would defeat the purpose.

If you are head set on FI, Go to the salvage yards and pull the Fuel injection and all the things needed with it. Make sure you get the brain box,(computer). There is a company that makes the wiring harness for the conversion. Takes a week or so to get the harness and the rest is up to you. My friend did it on his older (73) sportscoach with the 396! Cost was about $300.00!! Not bad for the price! He said it gets almost 4-5 more mpg. He took the the stuff off i think it was a 92 Chevy truck. He went to one of those u-pull-it yourself salvage yards. Just a idea, Dan

I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
