Running EFIE with O2 Extender ?
I have 2 O2 Extenders on my ford ranger and also running the EFIE at 230MV .

Should I run the EFIE with or without the Extenders ?


Also I have tried the EFIE in various MV settings , how to do you all determine your target voltage ?

RE: Running EFIE with O2 Extender ?
It's strictly by trial and error. The most common successful method is to raise the voltage like .050 at a time and drive for a tankful, noting the mileage. Repeat until your mileage gets worse, or bad symptoms appear.

This is covered in the instructions, and I admit that it's a pretty skimpy section of them. But I don't know what to add. You just have to use trial and error to get the best mileage for your particular make/model/year and fuel saving device(s) combination.

So your saying start out with a low number " 200 " if mileage doesnt go up , then go to 250 , then 300 , 350 so on

Yes, but even if mileage goes up, still try higher to see if it goes up more.

There's a new sticky in the Results section where guys can post the info on their installations, including their EFIE settings that will eventually be helpful. But I just started it, and there's only one entry so far.

Another thing I wanted to add , the rear O2 sensor wouldn't give me a high reading like the front , so I guess the upper bank O2's are really the only ones you need to mess with .

RE: Running EFIE with O2 Extender ?
Sorry, I'm not sure what you're trying to show me with your last post. I guess you have your probes connected to the white/green wires, and so have your EFIE set at .200 volts. (I only see the red probe)

If by front and rear sensors, you mean upstream and downstream from the cat, then yes, ignore the rear sensor. The only sensors that need to be treated are the ones upstream from the cat. Sensor on the cat or downstream from it are only used to alert the ECU when the cat goes bad.

Is there something else you wanted to know that I missed?

Oh, ok, that's cool.

But is there still an outstanding issue or question you need help with? Or are you now basically sorted out and rolling?
