Default High Fuel Consumption since I fixed the heat sensor

Hi!

Would like to have some feedback of people who had the heat sensor on their
civic's changed (have a 98 civic hatch)... Ever since, I've noticed that my
car guzzles up the gaz!!I'm getting around 11 liters/100km. It's nuts! Any
help or advice would be appreciated.

p.s.: even though I've replaced the heat sensor no.1, sometimes I still
smell the 'rotten eggs'. Not sure if the sensor is working properly. I don't
get the 'check engine' light...

Thanks!!

Jason

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "heat sensor"?

My 98 Civic Hatch gives poor mileage until the engine warms up. If your
Thermostat is broken and does not allow the engine to work at an optimum
temperature, the engine will return poor mileage. Also, exhaust emission
will be poor until the engine decides that the car is warm enough to go
into a more efficient burn (proper air/fuel mixture). Since there's more
pollutant
coming out of the engine (because it's running too cold), it's going to put
more
of strain on the catalytic converter which has to process all the extra
pollutant.
Catalytic converter replacement can be expensive.
