Leaded fuel and o2's

figured I'd post this in the racing forum, hopefully I'll get a bite here, and no, I'm not beating a dead horse. I run leaded fuel and I see no particular need to have the my wideband o2 hooked up and plugged in at all times, only when making track passes and datalogging. Is it good practice to remove and cap the bung for daily driving? Or do the benefits outweigh the cost? Looking to extend the life of the sensor.

Innovate Motorsports says it's not good on the sensors to have them in the exhaust but not powered up. On a side note I've had 2 sensors fail within 1000 miles while following their instructions to a T. I've also ran gobs of leaded AV gas by one and never had any trouble. Luck of the draw?


For everything that is worthwhile, there is a counterfeit.

Thanks for the reply, I've had mine in for 5 years now, a couple thousand miles with no issues. I thought of removing the sensor and plugging the bung and disconnect the pigtail from the sensor. Thanks!
