Check your EBP Tube!

Iv been getting bad fuel mileage ever since I bought my EX. Iv had it for about a year and constantly getting 14 to 16 mpg. I got it cheap but previous owner didn't really maintain it like it should have been. I finally got around to the EBP tube and sensor. I decided to buy a new sensor just because the EX has 240K miles but was going to clean the tube. Pulled the sensor, no problem. Then this is what I found when I went to take the tube off. So check your tube if you haven't yet. Hopefully I'll get a little better mileage out of it for the trouble.

Another option just throw it all away and use a pipe plug in the manifold.

How does the EBP effect the fuel mileage? How does plugging it off at the manifold change things? Will it cause any DTC's? Obviously, if the tube is broken, and letting exhaust (turbo drive pressure) to bleed off, I can see how that would do something to mileage, as the system is less efficient. But what about plugged and sensor still hooked up? Does the reading the PCM gets from the sensor effect how it regulates fuel?

I don't know what it does but from everything I read it has to stay clean or it will affect mileage. I do see where people remove them but if Ford put it there it must have some reasoning behind it. I'd rather keep it and not need it that need it and not have it. Just my opinion.

I didn't say it was a good reason!

I plugged mine off and tied it into the map sensor hose. Seems to work just fine. Found it in a thread somewhere on here.

Personally, I'd let the PCM still see the sensor data, unless someone who actually wrote the Ford programming can tell me other wise, I'd bet that the PCM uses it for fueling.

The sensor sees the map pressure instead. The way he explained it it is about the same.
