I have an old can of Berrymans that I use.

I heard the new Berrymans is not as good.

If you have a leak that you can smell and it still runs well it may not be
so much dirty as just worn out seals.

For that matter, the leak may be external to the carb entirely.

When did they switch to TBI? My 89 didn't have a carb.

Just my two cents.

My 1987 dodge van was the last year of the carburated ones. I sshould have waited another year and would probably have saved a lot of gas. When it was still relatively new(15,000 miles) I was getting about 17 mpg highway. Now it seems more like 12mpg at 89,000 miles.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

I wonder if the float in that carburetor is made of brass, or if it is one of those composite materials? Either way, the float could be bad, but those composite floats had a tendency to become porous and actually soak up gasoline, which made them too heavy to float. A float that does not float will seriously effect the miles per gallon, and might even cause the raw gas smell you are experiencing.

A basic carb kit with gaskets, new needle valve and seat, and a new float should cure it.

A can of aerosol carb cleaner will probably take care of the crud and grime.

Thanks for the comeback. I think that is what I will wind up doing if the weather doesn't get too cold.
