Default Any 3800 tuners near Chicago area? 2000 buick

I have a 2000 Buick regal and want to get a evap code deleted for small evap leak. Only getting 13 mpg , engine light on, I'm thinking that may be the culprit plus emission will be soon.

I found a guy a few years ago for my other Buick regal through this site ,but lost the info. Any help would be appreciated.

You could just get a programed PCM from the Wbodystore that has the code deleted. That's the easiest route. Unless someone with HPT can license your car really quick and just delete it for you.

I figured because the engine light was on it could be in some sort of default mode... But that's good to know. I did tune up a few months ago plugs/wires/oil/air filter, I check the tire pressure quite often . it runs really good just the mileage and the premium gas isn't cheap ...

I need to change the fuel filter.

how many miles are on the Upstream oxygen sensor? the one on the rear exhaust manifold near the number 4 and 6 spark plugs.
it is a primary trusted sensor and they are commonly skewed off of correct stoichiometric after 50000 miles or more
