Re: HORRIBLE gas mileage question?

Its because you have a straight pipe, both o2 sensors are reading the same reading and the c.e.l. will pop up. Same thing happened to me, I had a straight pipe no cat and no resonator, just had one o2 plugged into the downpipe and the other in the straight pipe. Ur o2 sensors are prolly fine but you deff need a cat. to make the 2nd bank o2 that's in ur straight pipe read a different reading then wat ur downpipe is at. I recommend wat I have is a high flow magnaflow catalytic converter, its cheap a good quality part. with this solved you should get better gas mileage in the long run.
