Hey,

Im getting around 160miles to a full tank, which is about 40 off what i normally get. Car idles ok, but has developed a little flat spot at low revs.

Possible Lamda sensor i was thinking?

Is there anything else obvious i should be checking? Spark plugs maybe?

Also, anyone know anywhere that i can get a O2 sensor? ;)

Thanks guys

could try changing O2 sensor for a cheap one, i got one not long ago for £17 and it sorted my lack of MPG (was getting 200 to a tank) , I can get 300 to 340 to a full tank now although mine is a basically STD GTSt with only slight mods.

Cheers

Poor MPG

Yes,

Most likely cause is dodgy lambda

Is the back of your car black through fumes? I have a white GTR and the back would get black when the Lambda was faulty [email protected]@dy nightmare. I could also smell the fuel on idle and it was pretty flat below 3000rpm

TFS,

What do you mean they dont fit? Will the wires have to be cut and repliced? Or does it physically not reach :p

they are the right size for a 33, 32 and 33 have different size sensors though

there are two diferent types but BOTH work on either with a few wiring changes

guide supplied on page 2 of rebuild thread

Be interesting to see how things pan out at the rolling road day Nino, I get about 250 miles to a tank, have black crap all around my exhaust and mostly drive like Miss Daisy (Fife Police are having a major crackdown on naughty drivers at the moment)
