Thanks for the info. Mine is a 3-wire O2 sensor. Do you know where I should
check the output? And I suppose it should be about .5 V at idle? Oh great -
crawling under there while everything is hot ... BTW, how can I tell if my
little cheapie volt meter is a "high impedance" meter?

I cleaned the injectors several times recently - if using Techron and such
in a couple of tankfulls in succession is what you mean. Is there a way to
more effectively test/clean those little devils? Looks like a PIA to get
them out though.

Yeah, you're right. I need to get in there and pull those codes. A little
skeptical though ... those several shops all tried to pull codes and got
nothing. Think I keep the scanner in the truck - if she acts up when I on
the road, I can pull over and see what the computer is thinking.

Thanks for the help. Latest report as of 11 PM CST - running pretty well -
got about 150 miles on the rear tank, gauge shows about half-full. (When
she's a no runnin' good, I get about 150 miles and the gauge reads empty).
Running well = 20-22 mpg, running poorly = 15 +/- mpg.

I'll stick with my '76 F250 Crew Cab short bed, it has all the right goodies
(Dana 60's front and rear, FE block 390, NP 435, NP 205)
