There is no pump to turn down.
Like Denny said higher gears will get better mileage. It will also depend on how much weight you have in it driving back and forth. I am not sure what the vans came with as far as gearing. The trucks had 3:55 and 4:10's with the 3:55 getting the better mileage.
8 mpg sounds low but I would say around 15 would be close to right during the winter if the area you live in has winterized fuel. But I wouldn't expect much more than 18-20 at best.
Also like Denney said don't believe the mileage claims that all the aftermarket folks claim. If they worked like they said you could get 30mpg by just adding a magnet.
