OK...14pmg for the last tank for all city driving. Well, that's it fellas...I'm installing a new Bosch O2 sensor.

Hey, why are the archives down lately?!

87 535is 152k

Me too! 15-16mpg city and 21-24 highway with O2 sensor unplugged. Still want to do the Mustang 02 sensor kluge.

87 535is 5-spd 152k

I've got an '86 535i, everything is stock. It seems to me that fuel consumption of 17 mpg of moderate driving in city cicle is a bit to much (considering the fact that it obviously lacks power). Or may be it is normal for this cars?

My '86 535i has always gotten 15 or less around town and 21-24 on the highway. California gas may be the problem.
