The O2 sensor is reading the exhaust as being too lean and is telling the computer to add more gas to the mix.
The first thing to do is check the exhaust system for leaks between the sensor and the engine. You are looking for small black streaks at joints. With the engine running run your hand close to the pipes and feel for air coming out. Repair any leaks first. Then check the wire harness for the O2 sensor by hand looking for bare or broken wires. Anywhere wires are rubbing against each other or on the body. Tape them up if you find anyand make sure there is no corrosion on the plug- ins.
If this is okay then I would replace the sensor. Hope this helps.

My Honda consumes a lot of fuel and produces a lot of sooth from the exhaust. What could be the problem?

Sounds like it is running too rich (improper fuel air mixture). Is your check engine light on? Most likely a bad o2 sensor or EGR valve.

I have Service engine light on for my nissan 2001 maxima. Dealer ran the diagnostics and said Bad o2 Sensor. Today , the Service engine light is gone.. Do I need to replace the part anyway or wait for the...

if it comes back, yes you will need. without pre o2 sensor your car wont idle, it will use lots of fuel and you will face drivability problems if it is post o2 sensor, it is there to check if catalytic converter is ok or not(it won caue drivability problems but may consume little more fuel to run rich and to save catalytic converter). if sensor is broken you need to replace it. if you have error for post o2 sensor but it is ok, this means your catalytic converter is going bad.

My 1999 Honda Accord sedan consumes a lot of fuel to the extent that 100 mile-drive consumes 30 litres of fuel

there can be many reasons for this. clogged air filter, clogged fuel filter, old spark plugs. if you do a tune-up and still the same problem, there are two things you can change, that will be the o2 sensor, which regulates how much gas and oxygen to combine for combustion, or the less likely one would be your etc or engine temperature control, which when bad for some reason also makes your car waste more gas than usual. but o2 sensor is MUCH more likely to go than etc sensor. hope this helps, goodluck

Low gas mileage and cutting in and out also engine lite on

This sounds very much like an O2 sensor. Most likely the primary one. This O2 sensor controls the amount of fuel that gets into the engine based on how well it is consuming it. This is a pretty easy job on most cars and the part usually costs around $60. Since your service light is on, you can take your car to a local parts store and they are most likely able to scan it for you for free and that will tell you the problem for sure. I hope this helped!

My 2001 Suzuki XL 7 is consumming excessive fuel 1litre for 4 km

Poor fuel consumption can be caused by a few things. One being the O2 sensor. You should also check your spark plugs, fuel filter, air filter, and try to find out whens the last time the vehicle had a tune up. Check your tires and make sure they are properly inflated as underinflated tires can make the engine work harder and consume more fuel. A little preventive maintanence goes a long way. Check engine light usually means the computer has detected a problem with the emission control for your vehicle. Have that checked ASAP because the longer you drive with the light on the greater the chances of permanent damage to the ECS.

tire psi correct .no dragging brakes,clean air filter.proper gap on spark plugs,clean oil,check engine light off should be good to save and calm driving habits should help/ oxygen sensors/ o2 .should be changed at 100,000 km regardless as they wear out,slow crosscounts to ecm via fuel management ,dont over look o2 sensors just because there is no dtc in computer history
