No problem! Hell I didn't even know about winter gas blends till now would be nice of those damn petro companies to advise the general public or atleast the local area you reside in of what your pumping instead of learning the hard way. Should be law.

As mentioned above, MPG will always slightly fall in the winter due to the winter fuel mix but o2 sensors still need to be changed periodically so isn't a better time to do so!
Alright thanks! Got it a year ago so still learning here haha guess I should do it anyway.

Having the same problem. Just ordered my two upstream on rockauto.com for a little over $60 shipped. By far the best prices I've found anywhere. Thanks to this forum I've found out great things about rock auto and decided to go that route!
