this is a bit of a newbie question but i serviced my car the other day and notced that the plugs had a reasonable amount of carbon buildup - which is supposed to mean a overly rich fuel mixture right? the car runs great and i have heard that carbs are sort of a compromise between smooth running at low revs and smooth running at high revs - is this true? - does this then foul up the plugs if im just pottering around town and its set towards running better at the top end of things? should i get it tuned or am i just being twit?
btw im going to classic adelaide in a minuete so if i take some snaps of some alfas (and im sure i will) ill post em up
