Default 99 SSEi Gas is expensive as *.....t! $2.38 a gallon

How the heck can I bring my gallons per mileage down, so I don't have to fill up every week. I drive an hour to work everyday.

O2Sensor maybe???

Is there any techinfos on how to bring down the gas per mile on your supercharge, engine?

thanks

If your O2 sensor is bad, then replacing it will help, yes. Maybe you could try some STP (or other brand) Fuel System Cleaner. That helped me A LOT the first time I ever used it. Cleaning the throttle body/intake can help. A lot of factors dictate your mileage, all the way down to your tire pressure.

Intake and exhaust work will increase mileage.

You should be getting around 27-29 mpg on the freeway. What are you actually getting?
