Q-Jet Metering Rod Idea

Ok I'm prolly gonna get a million posts tellin me how stupid I am for even thinking this up and I may be way off in the way my mind is thinking.... But anyways here it goes....

From what i understand there are 2 metering rods.. 1 for part throttle. and the second for WOT for use with the secondaries.. Well if this proves right.. Which it probably doesn't and this whole post is for nothing. But anyways back to the subject... If this is true. Then would it be possible to put one size of metering rod on the part throttle side to make it run a tad leaner and get better gas mileage. Then on the other side have a slightly richer rod for when the secondaries open?

I mainly thaught of this because I've been experimenting with 2 different sets of metering rods in my 305... One set gives me excelent gas mileage.. But not soo good power when the secondaries are open.. Where the other set gives me more ponies but less gas mileage... Was hoping to maybe have gas mileage to and from places.. Then when I open it up have the power there with a richer metering rod..

Also the side that sets lower is the Primary (part throttle) rod right? And the one slightly higher is for the secondaries?

Good idea? Bad Idea? Or just an idea i gotta experiment with on my own?
