30 mpg is very bad. I would fix that now. Check your oil and make sure your not dumping fuel in the sump.

Its probably a leaking petcock or dried out o-rings on the float. Maybe a worn float needle too.

Procycle sells a refresh kit with the rubber parts.

Float height needs to be .58" and make sure its all air inside. Old floats can leak and get heavy.

I would guess its the o-rings.

Thanks Drifter.

I've got a stock exhaust, what should my jetting be?

It runs fat, no choke required at start so I think I'm fighting a jetting problem. No fuel in the oil and the float is high and dry.
