I'm also unsure of what to do when the purge happens. Do you guys pull off a little to compensate, then get it back in once purge is done? Or just enjoy the little bump in speed? (Because, since I only get lean burn going that long on the highway, I usually can use it!)
Back when I still had lean burn I would let off a bit during the purge cycle to keep up the mpg, which was a lot of work.
I'm finding it's actually easier to drive on the highway without lean burn now, since I'm not having to fight the purges the whole time. I get a little less mpg the whole time, but it's a lot less work and a smoother ride.
I'm at about 350 miles into this tank and the FCD is at 77.0 so I really don't miss lean burn like I thought I would
