Ride: 2005 BA MKII XR6 Sedan

Location: Melbourne
VIC, Australia

I have a BA MkII XR6 that has done 120,000km's... It uses on average 13.5L/100km's.

Ive been told that if I replace the o2 sensor, this should make my fuel efficiency improve.

What I would like to know is:

1. Is this true?

2. Do I actually need to replace it???

3. What is a o2 sensor?


I also posted this on the xr6turbo forums... unfortunately though, that forum is full of xr6t fanboy douchebags :/

Nah i drive my car fairly softly... but it is in alot of stop, start traffic in peak hour times.

So that would be the reason for high fuel consumption.
