Replacing o2 sensors? Easy enough. Easier than changing spark plugs.

KingTJ Rockauto.com.. I bought mine there for a fraction of the price that others are offering them at!

Pesty15 I am having the same problem with gas mileage. Where is the best place to find the upstream o2 sensors for relatively cheap.

tsteb Not much. I let the oil pressure come up and then I put it in gear and start going.

EnglishBulldog1 I get a bit better mileage with the non ethanol gas, but not worth the extra .10 a gallon. Stupid question but are you doing any extra idling? Letting warm up?
02-17-2013 12:27 AM
PStov98TJ That's no fun. I live in Mississippi so there are still a few mom and pop gas stations that sell it. It's more expensive but because I have to leave my Jeep sitting at home for a long periods of time while I'm away at school, the non-ethanol is better for it. And after I started running non-ethanol in it, I noticed a slight increase in gas milage (like 1 mpg maybe) and it definitely runs a little smoother. Just my 2 cents
02-17-2013 12:21 AM
Patrick H Around here, at least, you can't buy gasoline without 10% ethanol.
02-17-2013 12:15 AM
PStov98TJ Try running a tank of non-ethanol through it too. It's better for the older engines than this crap E-10 stuff they're selling us now

raramirez I noticed the same thing. I thought it was my jeep until I noticed my girlfriends car (toyota corolla) doing the same thing. It has to be the gas... It's a conspiracy.. Just kidding but not really
02-15-2013 07:04 PM
scott howard replace your up stream o2 sensors
02-15-2013 08:20 AM
tsteb Yeah. It's going down a lot faster than normal. The gauge. I used to get 240mi on one tank and now I get 180mi per tank. Same driving habits.
02-15-2013 12:28 AM
Patrick H Burning fuel? Like, poor fuel mileage?

Fuel problem

Burning fuel really bad. This started happening all of a sudden. I think I might be loosing fuel somehow even though there are no puddles on the driveway. Any suggestions? Just changed oil too.
