Ride: EF Futura Wagon

Location: Toowoomba
QLD, Australia

My 94 EF was running rich and going though around 16l/100k. Changed the oxy sensor with one from auto barn, just the multi fit type (around $70). I now use almost exactly what the books say I should. Around 7.5l highway and 12l city. Engine has done 200,000k.

I'm pretty impressed.

cheers
Scott
