How to fix a book with huge margin?

I have a book which was an epub, liberated and put into Calibre. When I put it onto the Kindle, the left margin was very large and it was a waste of a ton of screen space. What setting do I need to tweak in the conversion in order to resolve this issue?

What version of calibre are you using?

When converting to mobi go to the mobi output and check ignore margins.
