Need HELP!!!
 
Mpg recently has gone out the window. Same driving habits. Wondering what problem might be. Any suggestions?

Could be bad upstream o2(s). Common side effect when they crap out and they wont always trigger a check engine light.

The o2 sensors? How much would you estimate for them to be fixed? What about fuel filter

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!

What do I need upstream or downstream? What is their purpose

The upstream sensors are what tend to control fuel delivery. When you computer is saying your running lean ( your upstream o2 sensors have gotten lazy ) and the computer compensates for your jeep running lean by pushing more fuel. The downstream sensors are there to tell your computer than you have a problem in your catalytic converter(s). They have nothing to do with fuel delivery. 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! :thumb:

No problem! Hell I didn't even know about winter gas blends till now :doh: 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.
