It could be that the oxygen sensors are old.


You Mass Air Flow meter could also be dirty. Check you fuel line for leaks as well. The rubber tends to dry out and fuel is sure to leak.


I had a rusted fuel line on top of a gas tank that leaked when the vehicle was running and I used a lot of fuel. I didn't notice it until the leak got bad enough to run down the back of the fuel tank.
