    Hello all, Today, I had started my car for the second time as I was leaving the gas station and I had a CEL.

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    Now that all of those acronyms are out of the way, it's throwing a rich fuel code. I pulled the battery power when I installed it and will probably pull power again to try and reset it. Am I going to have to tune over a damn SRI? That said, I'm supposed to take it in for an oil change soon...
