Holy **** dood that's the deal of a lifetime bro. Only 40k miles that's insane. I would have bought that in a heartbeat no questions asked. The car is worth 3 x that Mayby even 4x

This is the desirable fuel ratio because your cats operate at there peak efficiency.
14.7/1 isn't for cat operate efficiency it's for the engine to operate at peak performance.

14.7 to 1 is exactly what I said it was. Check your research. Not trying to be a dick or start a fight just check your facts. When you step on your accelerator to full throttle you fuel ratio changes significantly richer then 14.7 to 1

I wouldn't go based off that. Your speedo is probably pretty accurate

ASE certifications. It's what you need to be considered a master tech.

ASE's are the reason I make the money I make today. There only good if you can apply the knowledge to the job which a lot of people can't do. I don't know what you do but I'm a fully certified master tech with 10 years experience. If I were you where you I wouldn't put your money where your mouth is.

Every state has emissions some states (mine included aka Minnesota) just don't test.

How did you determine it's off?
14.7/1 is the ideal mix for the combined purposes of engine performance, emission control and fuel economy! Aka stoichiometric.

There how was that for an answer!? Lol.

You did your research. That's a much more accurate answer. Well done! Don't worry I've kept my cool even after you contradicted just about everything I said.

I didn't have to do research I just gave a more detailed answer lol. What all did I contradict? The fact that Ford doesn't give a s**t about ASE and that Fors would rather you be Ford Certified in their dealership!?!?? Lol.
