DV - Carb & Ignition Eco-tuning Made Easy

David Vizard starts out with a nice write up done on how to tune a carburator for best fuel economy. He also explains how to time the engine for best economy.

I don't necessarily agree with his ideas about leaning out as far as possible as this can significantly raise NOx emissions, but it will get you better fuel economy.
