Rule of thumb...if you don't know when the O2 was last changed, do it.

Besides, your done the hard part already anyway...

I just went for like a 20 mi drive according to the DIC I went from 14.9 avg mpg to 21.6 avg mpg 40/60 city/highway

I only ask because I dont know what signs to check for possible problems on the o2sensor you pull out.

Other than that it has been several years since it'* been new, it looks pretty normal. It was time for replacement. Good choice on which one.
