I've seen most O2'* here on BC fail in the 50-60k mile range. I'm also a victim of the Bosch, as is jr's3800. It worked fine for a month, then crapped. It didn't restore ALL of my previous efficiency, but it came close.....just not for long. I still have the POS, I should put it back in and see what the scantool has to say about it.

I went and put $10 from a Sunoco today and it seems not to be eating as much so far. I put 89 in again.

Day2 on sunoco gas and still getting better gas mileage. My bad gas mileage might have been caused by Sheetz gas

Dave, you drive like a rock is on the pedal though... Or maybe your subs are sucking gas...

I have one gas station i fill up at in lakeville, ALL car'* i've used for long periods of time run SO much better off of it. It used to be a Philips 66 i think, but now it'* a holiday (gas still is good).
