Replacing the entire engine at 60K miles would probably net better performance and reliability too....but I doubt anyone would go to the expense. My whole point being that spending $60+ replacing a part that probably does not "need" to be replaced (and is non-returnable) in the "hope" of netting a performance or MPG improvement is penny wise and pound foolish. At 2 tanks (10 Gal) a week, even a net MPG increase of 3 MPG would "save you" maybe 1 gallon a week. At $2.50 a gallon, it would take 4-5 months for even a "cheapy" $60 O2 sensor to "pay for itself" and even start to net you any real savings. ...
