Interesting choice of words.....

Anyway, without knowing the type of driving you do it is IMPOSSIBLE to tell you if there is anything wrong... getting spun up about tailpipes and 'rich running' is silly.

Furthermore, are yoiu using the "MPG" diplay on the computer? Or are you calculating 'miles used versus fuel added'?

What is your average speed? Is it city driving with 90% of the time under 15mph?
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
