Hiya fellers,

I get about a 30% drop in gas milage when it gets cold. :cry:

I go from 47 to 32mpg.
Any of you cold weather drivers get the same results?

Once I'm on the hwy I think the engine could be leaned out. I havn't looked into it yet but I am thinking of tricking the comp into thinking it is warmer by adding a switch and resistor to ground (if the pc measures by resistance).

don't take the temp sensors to chassis ground or you'll smoke the ecu. the sensors use a dedicated circuit with a return ground to the ecu.
