OEM Honda. They're not extremely expensive and are worth the quality and peace of mind.

Supposedly fuel injector cleaner with a full tank of gas after a tuneup is bad?

Can anyone shed some light on the detrimental effects of fuel injecotr cleaner?

That stuff will yield nothing more than a placebo effect. If you're buying gas from say for example Chevron, the additives like Techron are more than likely to clean your fuel injectors. However, if your car is old and your gas tank is rusting, that could cause long-term and unforseen problems. Most modern cars today should be okay. Rather than spend the money on a bottle of (useless) fuel injector cleaner, spend the 7 minutes instead to check your tire pressure.

I would think the colder weather we've been having would affect your mpg somewhat.

I haven't tried this myself yet.

I've been using WIX filters for all of my oil changes.

You can pick up a universal magnaflow for about 100 bucks
they won't "clean" the air as well as an oem because they have less cells and a cheaper mix of precious metals

but if your car engine is healthy then the cat (being a new magnaflow) shouldn't hold you back at aircare

call up mopac (604-881-4900) and get a quote for a magnaflow.. or make a trip to your local Canadian Tire

the sponsors might be able to hook you up as well..

why would a cat converter affect your gas milleage?


i mean i ran test pipe before which is a cat delete, and that didnt affect any of my gas milleage. Why would a bad cat affect it?

Forgot to mention my aircare expires right when spring hits

EDIT: I think a member mention if a Cat converter gets clogged then the engine would have to work a bit harder to compensate

Napa Gold... They are rebranded Wix.

Sometimes even OEM is not the best; Mazda Canada OEM filters are shit (aka Blue Can of Death).

Yup.

This happened on my MK1 Supercharged MR2. I was at Kinetic Motorsport and hypa pointed out my intercooler was flexing beyond normal. Turned out it was a melted cat. Car drove like ass and mileage went down the drain.

so it restricts the airflow?

Well if you think about it, it can relate to a sink, if one is clogged vs. the one that isn't clogged, which one is going to drain faster?



Bad analogy

Yup. An engine's cold start process would likely work longer in order to get the engine up to proper operating temperatures before it drops into a closed loop.

The price range for an O2 sensor really ranges.

I gave rockauto a check for a 93' Del So, and it looks like 40 bucks for your cheapest.

If you go to VAP Auto Parts, I would likely expect maybe close to double to price, so 80 dollars? for your O2 sensor.

I would also research to see which brand works the best.

[Since the CDN exchange rate is fairly good, your best bet might be to order a bunch of supplies from rockauto, since the shipping kind of kills the deal if you order only a small amount]
