230 Sedan Fuel Delivery
Hi All -- this is my first post. I'm glad to be a member!
I've got a 75 230 sedan (W115). On occasion, usually when it's wet out (not unusual here in Seattle), I get a momentary -- like a second or even half a second -- loss of power, and then it kicks back in. I don't think it's the fuel pump, so I'm thinking of carb problem. I'm also getting miserable gas mileage -- I know I shouldn't expect too much from a 93 hp gas engine powering a 3500+ lb vehicle -- but we're talking almost V-8 levels of consumption: 12 mpg on average, maybe 15 if I'm doing a lot of highway. So perhaps I need some carb work?
In my quest to improve performance and and economy, I have some questions:
1. Does Weber make a conversion for this car?
2. Would any increases in performance and economy be worth the expense?
3. Does anyone know if it's possible to convert to fuel injection?
the car is a beauty -- I bought it a few months ago with 60k original miles (documented), for a really good price, and drive it every day. I love it -- so I don't mind spending a bit. Any opinions/advice/recommendations? Thanks!
