304 carb questions

I was wondering how much of a difference it is in gas milage between a 2bbl and a 4bbl carb on a 304. I was thinking about the performer intake with a basic 4bbl, or putting an adapter plate on it and put my 2bbl holley back on it.

I have the Edelbrock 4bbl 600cfm carb on my 304 with the performer intake and cam, fresh motor etc, it has primary and secondary bores so as long as you can keep your foot out of it, it will function as a 2 bbl(Primary)and when you stomp on it the 2 secondaries will open up as well as the 2 primary bbl.
Mine runs great, i did need to add the off road kit to it so it wouldnt flood out as much on hills.
As for mileage, i dont keep track, just fill the tank when it gets empty!

People tell me the 4bbl will give better mpg if you stay out of the secondaries. Smaller primary jets in the 4bbl. All bets are off once you open up the secondaries, though!!
