Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change. It had been over 5 months since I'd put a new one in. So, we got a new air filter, and monitored the usage, and it was back to normal again. Maybe try this?

The poor performance of the car makes the consumption go up as it needs trimming of the engine.The main issue can be a fault in the fuel settings and so we need to check the carburetor as the fuel mixing is very important. Remove the plugs to check gap and condition of plugs. The black plug indication will confirm that the performance is bad, high fuel use whereas a fully fired plug without deposits must be the ideal view. Check the HT coil and the HT wires, if the intensity is bad this must be swapped and checked to confirm. DO NOT CHANGE any part without a confirmation by trying with a replacement from another vehicle or friend. Now use a strobe to check the Timing on the engine. Adjust if needed to see the TOP DEAD CENTER-TDC- mark. If there is valve noise make sure that the tappets are set properly so that the valves seat firmly for the best compression. Also check compression of engine if there is imbalance on the engine or reduced power.
So finally the plugs, the gap settings , the valve settings, the fuel/air mixture and timing must be trimmed for best performance.
The fuel setting needs experience to achieve the performance.
