    What is the history of the car? To have problems in both the intake (MAF) and the exhaust (O2) is highly unusual. Where is it parked? Any history of rodents? Codes thrown by the ECU are highly specific and the manufacturer provides a list of potential causes in order of probability and a diagnostic tree to follow in troubleshooting the problem. Just saying O2 sensor is meaningless, there are at least a half dozen O2 specific codes as an example.

    That must have been some really terrible gas to screw up your car and throw those errors.

    Any way to report the station? I'm pretty sure there should be a way since that could have severely damaged your car.
