That's within the normal range, albeit the low end.

People constantly overlook how big of a contribution "foot management" makes to fuel economy. My wife gets a consistent (and frustrating) 22 hwy in ours - while I get 26-27. Same vehicle, same roads, same speeds. Only thing changed is the nut behind the wheel.

Hi everyone I know this is a super old thread but I didn't want to start a whole new one...

So my E's got around 171k on the odometer & I've never replaced either oxygen sensor. I was going to be doing some other stuff like fuel system cleaning, replacing plugs & air filter so thought maybe I'd install new sensors too. Is it something that wears out/collects build-up over time & might be a good idea? Or don't bother just wait til it craps out?

Any advice is much appreciated, thanks!😁

Yes, I replaced both front and back sensors, bought them both from Walmart online (!) - Genuine OEM parts, best price - even beat Amazon. I checked the ODB II readings and it showed the front sensor was shot, so I replaced them both. My gas mileage improved.

Disc not know this...144,000 miles and got the display error code for bad icy sensor. Googled it to find oxygen sensor can significantly affect mpg. Scheduled for replacement tomorrow...$169. Including labor. Googled video and see it is easy to do yourself if you have a lift and special wrench...I’ll pay to have it done.
