OK I have driven the car for over 2 weeks now. Mind you it needed a tune up and had a 1/2 tank of old gas. I did the tune up on friday so only had 4 days of driving with the tune up.

I went 135 miles on 3.7 gal so came out to 34.5 MPG.

Going to take it easy this tank and see if it improves after the tune up. Also going to change the O2 Sensor still as well. a Massive Improvement over the 21 i was getting in the LeBaron and the 8-12 on the Fiero.

Thats the mpg I've had when my O2 sensor needed replacing. Do you have the common 1 wire type? Or the hard to find 5 wire? Or the easier but still hard to find 4 wire (like mine)?

It is the 1 wire, I have one in a box in the garage, I just need to go get the Socket so I can change it.

Remove the steel panel next to the radiator. You will then be able to use a box end wrench to remove the O2 sensor. Make sure you heat the manifold around it with a torch to get it loose.
