Like Bob, I think that feels a bit on the low side. I have most certainly been down to that sort of figure but with a sidecar fitted and someone in it. I do believe that the change to the SU carb was an attempt to improve mpg but the thing which seems to affect mpg most on a Square is compression ratio. Assuming that you have the 5.8 to 1 pistons which are standard for a 4G or MK I, I don't think you will ever achieve high mpg. But you will have a much smoother, more flexible engine which to me is worth the poorer mpg.
I suspect the only useful thing you can do is to check the usual suspects such as ignition and valve timing and distributor wear.
