Hey Guys,

Just a question about my fuel economy and the effects of a faulty O2 sensor.

Currently I'm getting around 13 - 15 MPG in town, I do drive moderately hard so that does not help the situation and I do have a 3.0 V8...is this considered normal gas consumption for this type of car? I do get up to 24 MPG when cruising on the highway.

If this isn't considered normal consumption what could be the problem?

My guess is O2 senser, I do have winter tired on the car right now, so that would have an effect, other then those two factors I don't have any other guesses.

Cheers
Scott
