Huh? we haven't had carbs since the late 70's and some of last ones had some really messed up electronics and emission equipment tacked on to them.

I think that the FE on EFI cars was gobbled up by stricter and stricter emission standards. If we still had the same emission standards we had in the1960's and earlier's, EFI would have run circles around any carb in performance and FE.
