Thatís just an incorrect statement. The maximizing of the A/F ratio is done by the oxygen sensor & the feedback controls. Stoichiometric fuel mixes come from the emissions system toggling rich/lean to achieve stoichiometricity & thus maximizing the air/fuel ratio. A plugged or restricted fuel filter will usually affect power, but you can still have a maximized air fuel ratio.
