There are many possibilities, most of them do not require a lot of 
money to fix, rather they just require a bit of background to know 
what to adjust or replace.

If it is running rich I would check the regulating voltage.  If it is 
below 13.5 V I would replace the voltage regulator.  This is a common 
problem, but in recommending it I am assuming that most of the other 
obvious things about your FI system are running properly.  To be 
honest, this is probably not a safe assumption.

Where are you located.  You need to find someone who is FAMILIAR with 
D-Jetronix.  Few mechanics are.
