Usually my first step is to push down on the airflow plate with my finger and see if the system responds to the richer mixture.

I then disconnect the O2 sensor and verify the ability to give a 50% fault code. If it does then I would try readjusting to the proper point.

One must understand that there is no significant difference inmixture between closed loop at 90% and closed loop at 50%. If the system reached the end of compensation somewhere in the high 90 percentile, immediately it would only be slightly different mixture than at closed loop 90%.

Mixture is held to a very tight tolerance when in closed loop and the car can run perfectly significantly above or below what is achieved in closed loop.
