If your gasoline doesn't have an oxygenator in it, like Ethanol, you might consider looking for some. Many of the lower priced gas stations add ethanol as a low cost octane booster. Ethanol by itself is about 110 AKI octane. If you can't find this type of gas at the pumps, try adding a couple of bottles of Heet Gas Line Anti-Freeze. It is also alcohol based and will add more oxygen to the gas. More oxygen will make your excessive CO readings go down and become acceptable CO2 instead. Normally this works better in carburated cars, because the Oxygen sensor takes care of it in Fuel Injected cars, but it might be worth a try.
