Also try and do all your acceleration & gear change below 2000rpm. you'll find that you will catch up to the d***head that drag you of the lights on the next set of red lights.

On this topic of saving fuel. cause mine is sh*thouse, 450 to a full tank of hwy driver at 105.
replaced the oxygen senser, for 1 tank i got close to 750, now it's back down to 420-440.
Could the ECu shat itself?? what else can i check to get my mileage back?
