[V8] ABH using lots of fuel!

I changed the engine temperature sensor today. There's one in the back of 
the right cylinder head that sends a signal to the ECU. There was no 
difference whatsoever. The car runs just as rich. The spark plugs are black, 
and the old oxygen sensor was all black, not the normal greyish-brownish 
color you'd expect.

The engine runs smooth, but very rich... I really don't know what could 
cause this.

92 V8 4.2
...too many miles it seems...
