I would get around 21 mpg with my 34 ICH, and 19 with my 32/34 DMTL. What screw

on what carb?

Will get back to you - not sure what model to be honest.

Pretty sure getting no where near 21mpg - of course I wasn't expecting good fuel consumption from a s3 that's not why I bought it, but would like to get it better than it is if I am going to keep the petrol engine and not replace it with the a diesel.

I no longer have mine on as I have a VW Diesel in it now, but I will dig it out of the pile of Rover parts in the garage, have a look at the screws, and let you know. Have you checked your plugs to make sure it is jetted right? I live at 7400' and I think I had to run a 150 main. It had a 165 in it when I got the Rover. To be fair, I did also have 9:1 comp and a header in place of the worthless cracked cast exhaust, so both may have helped mileage a bit too.

Well, mine is quite burried. But from what I remember the screw near the base towards the front, is the idle mixture. The ones towards the bulkhead are the idle speed and idle speed for the choke. There is a brass plug with a slot towards the valve cover. The idle jet is behind it, so if it won't idle, that jet needs cleaning.
