A bad rear o2 doesn't really affect you too much if any. It only reads if your cats are working properly. Doesn't really do anything besides that

A bad o2 can throw your mpg's down. Speaking from past experience in a accord I had back in high school. It made the mpg drop along with a foul fuel odor and car lost some power(Wat little it had) Once replaced all went back to normal and vtec was kickin lol

Rear O2 only detect the emissions and throw the light, they don't affect how your vehicle runs at all. The front O2s are the ones that make your car run badly.

It could be a faulty ect sensor ( engine coolant temp ) would throw no lights but could be telling computer to richen up the fuel for below zero climate even though it wouldn't be cold outside
