The injectors can only be read if they fire or not and not how much they put out. But if they put out to little or too much the O2 sensors would be able to pick that up. At this point I am baffled. After five tanks after the dealer looked at it, it appears my mileage is slowing going back up to where it was when I took it in. Still low in my opinion. The tech seemed very sincere and tried to explain as much as he could. Not sure what to do now but hope something breaks and shows the problem.
thks for sharing the outcome. I guess I will save myself painful appointments to end with no results. I'll just bite the bullet and I'll though it out for the next 42 months (mine is a lease!)...
