yay CEL

hey guys, i dont know if any of u guys remember, i posted a thread about my CEL that kept coming on and off after i installed my dc headers. i was jst about to buy a new denso O2 sensor, (cuz thats what the diagnostics were pointing at) when while driving to the store it came off. i thought wat the hell, ill drive around a lil longer. and as soon as it came off i reset my odometer to see how long it will be before it comes on again. to my surprise it's been as of today 450 miles of it staying off. i think its off for good now. i know this thread is kinda pointless, but im jst happy my lude is back to normal. but i will point out one thing. i did notice that while it was on, my lude did hardly 15-18 mpg. i actually did test this. now that its been off, im averaging around 25-28 mpg. im not sure why exactly, n dont call me a liar, because like i said, i did actually test this. if anyone might have an idea as to why that is, let me know. thanks.

Re: yay CEL

When my O2 sensor went bad I ran with it like that for a good thousand miles just about. And my gas mileage seemed to increase, then it dipped again. Honestly bro thats cool, but I would replace the sensor anyways, save you some time in the future...IMO
