How does this EFIE work? What does the circuit look like? I once played around with the O2 voltage by just adding 0.2 of a volt to the signal with a 3v battery and a simple $5 voltage divider circuit and it gave me a mile per gallon or more. Did not check the placebo effect. Newer ECU's are harder to fool.
I have considered rigging up a little circuit to do this very thing. I was a little concerned about the A/F ratio when I did this, however. As I understand things, going a little more lean should not be a problem... This method would beat spending $75 for a EFIE gizmo.
