DREWSKI 03 is on a distinguished road
Default Mpg help/o2 sensor

So I removed my cat a few days ago and the truck seems to me like its getting worse fuel millage which it probaly is and I payed to get it removed so I don't wanna have to pay to get it put back on but I read somewere about the spark plug non fouler trick, so my question is will it actually work for my rear o2? And will it make my mpg retrun?

The spark plug anti fouler with some steel wool in front of the 02 sensor does work. I ran my 2006 300C with gutted cats like that for years with zero codes.
