The oxygen sensor measures the oxygen content in the exahust. It generates a very samll amount of voltage depending on the oxygen content. The range of voltage is 0-1volt.

The sensor knows not what fuel is introduced, so if you add another combustible fuel other than gasoline, the sensor will read the percentage of the post combustion oxygen.
The signal is read by the ECU which then adjusts the duration of the injector cycle to produce the proper air fuel mixture.

If you add more non metered combustible fuel, the system will reduce the amount of fuel injected aslong as it is within the range of the systems adjustment. Outside of that range will most likely get you a check engine light.

Does the air/fuel ratio for the different fuels matter?

My Good Friend George.

I WANT to help you.
Please..... Stop jerking these nice people around and contact me.

Here is why.

Your presentation is fantastic, (gush) BIG, BIG, FAN, but it does need a little tweaking from a world famous, professional presenter like myself.

I have provided help to millions of geniuses like yourself with my easy to follow presentations, made them piles of cash so big they slept on them and I did it all from the comfort of my multimillion dollar training facility hidden deep in the Sonoran Desert!

I will teach you, and only you George, my most sought after, Top secret, TECHTen Program!

10 easy sales technique that have made INVENTORS like yourself millions and for less money than you spend on Coffee!

Now, just be patient George, thats all I am asking, nothing more, sit back, relax AND have a little faith.

I am here to help YOU!

Here is a sampling of what you will learn at one of my TECHTen "Super Psycho" clinics.

TECH1- I will teach you several subtle techniques that will initiate the "suspension of disbelief" principal much sooner and allow you complete side step those pesky "integrity" questions.

TECH2- I will teach you how to correctly employ "Forced Partnering" so the mark will believe that you ARE actually trying to be helpful instead of tricking him with smoke and mirrors.
FYI- This one is a real money maker.

TECH3- I will teach you how to convincingly produce technically based assertions that no engineer, in his right mind, will ever be able to refute.

That George, is just a sample of the tools & techniques you will learn.

Hold on to your hat George and get ready to make LOTS and LOTS of Huge MONEY hocking your several incredibly valuable and fuel saving products and literature.

Sincerely,
The Tramp

Ambient oxygen are pumped through the porous platinum eletrode through the zirconia cell and to the exterior platinum eletrode creating a voltage. The oxygen ions can only flow if the exhaust contains hydrogen(h20), carbon monoxide(CO), hydrocarbons(HC) in other words the combustibles not O2.
More effient combustion you can end up with less 02.
