Re: 1987 TBI 2.8, gas mileage?
Hello all, haven't updated this in a while, wanted to see where my gas mileage would go with more driving, and the results aren't great. More of the same. About 12mpg last fill. Realistically I think I should be getting about 16mpg, as I do a lot of short trips, and have 3.73 gears. As stated earlier, it still smells like it runs rich, has a kind of "lawnmower" smell to it, according to a friend :P .Where would the O2 sensor be located on these? I feel dumb for asking, but I just looked at the exhaust pipe, and didn't find anything. I looked on the Y-pipe, after both exhaust manifolds dump together, and before the place my catalytic converter would be, but didn't see anything. Also will be changing the transmission fluid soon, pan is leaking bad, if the forecast showed a day without lows below zero I would get it done...
