Re: Bad O2 sensor / high fuel consumption?

I'd call 26-27 mpg average regardless of driving circumstance pretty good
for a slushbox Audi in the heaviest iteration of the body style.  I can
better that with my 5kcstq at steady speeds on the limited access highway
(30 mpg averaging 70 mph), but when I have to stop and go a bunch, mileage
drops to around 24.
