    you dont. You run it rich so you dont get stuck in the water with your kids on a dead ski. For mpg you get a honda F12x and stay off the throttle.

    I was told it was running rich and want to know how to adjust it so it is running right where it should be. WITH OUT LEANING IT OUT.

    I don't want to have to put the SJ motor in it

    You will not change your fuel consumption with carb settings. IF you are rich and it is running good leave it alone.
