No A/C. I am really surprised that my VX has been getting the better FE of the VXes on here. I did do an exhaust clean at Jiffy Lube after I got the car. And a whole lot of white smoke poured out of my exhaust for a good five minutes. But really, not to toot my own horn, I think it's how I drive. But I dunno, I don't drive that crazy. I coast when I can and I employ the gradual grades for pulse and glide. What's your most common speed you drive at? Mine is like 45. But sometimes I get into FE crazy mode and will drive 35-40.

If the o2 sensor is bad will it throw a code/check engine light? Or is it one of those things you just change when you think its time?

Thanks in advance!

That was me signed in on wombosi's computer. not sure what a wombosi is. Wombosi and I make up words or phrases when we feel that the existing lexicon is lacking. Wombat soup... as in... good stuff. Maybe Wombosi will reply to this thread and be able to tell you what a wombosi is.
