I was getting 12 mpg, ecs light was always on. Last week I took the top off the air cleaner, the ecs light quit coming on, and I got closer to 20+ mpg.
Today I bought a new air filter, put the top back on the air cleaner, and I'm back to the ecs light being on,and assuming I'm back to poor milage.
What should I be looking at in the smog system (?) to clean/ and or replace to improve my milage?
Thanks for any help, dp.

These may have problems.
you mean "Check engine" light when you say
"ecs light was always on
the error code is stored in the ECU.
Why not retrieve the code and find out what is not to spec?
ECU code retrieval instructions and code chart
BTW most newer Brats do not have ECU's maybe because your's is an automatic or a CA model?
You don't mean "erg" light by chance do you?

Skip, it is the ecs light, haven't seen the check engine light come on.. Is the o2 sensor on the exhaust somewhere. I've never messed with one before.
