It's not a constant AFR it varies with throttle position and rpm (load) lean at lite loads but just don't have to try to stay in lean burn. I don't drive this car any more, I sold it to my son. He's not an ecomodder but he still gets a combined 47 mpg on a car with 230,000 miles on engine that has never been open. I used to average 50+ with some 60+ mpg when I was driving it regular.
