The 1500 is not known for good "mileage".. 27mpg "around town" is perhaps a little low, but a lot depends on how you drive it.. It is not terrible... I have a 2000SE also, and last tank was about 32mpg highway... my 1100 gets 40+... I do think that your CO is too high ( was that at idle?) suggesting too rich... if that was idle, that can be leaned out with the idle mixture screws and will affect mileage particularly "around town" (low power)... and finally, the already mentioned float levels would be suspect to me even if a "reputable" shop did it.. unfortunately that requires a complete teardown to check it... ( I am kinda down on mechanics lately.. my recent experience has been do it myself or pay someone to mess with it before I still have to do it myself.. ) SDB/Jim
