    I have a scanner that reads live data, you're more then welcome to use it. Hopefully I can learn something about it too. I know you're a little far from me. I'm in Keansburg 07734.

    That would be a hell of a road trip lol. Thanks though. I'm sure I can find one of the local shops around here to scan it for me. I will let you know when I figure it out. I don't plan on replacing it as I never use e85. If I remember correctly it was like 4 hundred something dollars vs the 160 dollar plug in simulator.

    Yea I'd like to actually see what it's doing that way I can post back with the results. My 99 sbec Silverado got way better mpg than this it was not the l59 this one is. It's not throwing any codes and runs good so I'm assuming its think it has e85 or at least a mixture of it and it's running richer according to that which in turn drops mpg.

    This happened to mine, although I have the vffs, not the hard sensor. Somehow in a refueling event it landed at 30% with e85 in the tank and threw lean codes until I ran through the tank, filled up with gas and reset the comp %.
