Q: The fuel consumption of my car is too much. What should I do pls?

asked by on

I discovered after 6 months of using my car that the fuel consumption is much. The car was scanned and the two sensors was defective. It was replaced but the consumption didn't reduce. On trying to scan the car again, the bank 1 sensor( the one close to the manifold) could not be seen. so what can I do to access it ?
