Re: MPG down, HP down

     Sounds like your cam is going flat but I doubt it.  What do your plugs 
     look like?  Do you smell a strong gas odor at your tailpipe(how's that 
     for a straight line?)  Is the air filter or air box blocked in any 
     way?  Do you feel any drag when coasting?  
     Your plugs and exhaust will tell you alot.  I have a feeling that one 
     of them is going to look drastically different than the others.

Hello everyone:
I have a 1990 90Q 20V and over the past six month I have noticed an increase in 
g as consumption 
(from 22MPG to 17.5MPG) and at the same time loss in overall HP espically under 
4 000RPM. I believe 
the two problems are related, and may be caused by a faulty O2 sensor but that 
wa s replaced 25k 
Does anybody have some solutions?
