It's a good summary, but it's US-centric. Although we had the same
terminology in the UK, almost no engines had OXS-sensor controls until
1990. Our original ur-quattro (no, it's not tautology) had no fuel
control in the ECU - there are no electrically controlled components
in the fuel system at all. The later MB version (like mine) has
a fuel frequency valve but still no OXS sensor - it "flies blind" using
tables and calculations based on rpm, air temperature and boost. The
last ur-quattros use Motronic 2.4.1 EFI with an OXS sensor.
