Re: O2 sensor for Suzuki Sport

Seems to be a common issue on the sport. I'm @ 90,000km atm, and I've had 2 O2 sensors - but it was the CAT that needed to be replaced.

Give it about 5000kms to actually let up. Then it'll settle on a fuel consumption. Don't bother check for at 1500kms what it is. My Sport was crazy high (>10l/100km) for the first 3-4 tanks!
