160km on highway but cruising at 90km/h, rest a mix of urban and extra urban
I think I am running quite rich and that a good carb tune up will help to reach 6km/l

Updates: managed to get the exhaust fixed by a local workshop, using Walker exhaust pipe for XJ and Walker tail pipe for SJ 5.9....
I also had the flywheel resurfaced and a new clutch disc installed, but the issue is still there, despite reduced. What else shall I look at? Going reverse is still a pain...
New problem spotted: early morning with cold and humidity it runs very badly, it stalls and can hardly rev up. Fitted new spark plugs and will probably inspect the carburetor to see whether choke is working and idle jets are free. Just driven back from the shop and it did run fine, but tomorrow morning...who knows?
