Possibly simple question

I have what might be a simple question, I have 2 injectors with low balance I think it said. I realize that winter fuel SUCKS, and I'm going to burn more than normal, but I'm burning a LOT more than I was expecting.

Question; Will bad injectors cause me to burn more fuel?

Thanks

What kind of fuel mileage are you getting? Iffy injectors will definitly decrease your fuel mileage ,along with low high pressure oil . Optimum atomization of the fuel = better fuel economy.

I swapped out the HPOP with a reman 17* 10K ago. Probably in the 9-10mpg range. I was thinking the 2 I know were bad was going to be an issue. I'll just swap out the set. I think I want to move up to stage 1's, recommendations?
