First thing to check would be your charging system regulating 
voltage. With the engine still running at medium rpm after a warmup 
drive, the voltage measured at the battery should be 14.1 - 14.4 V. 
It will measure about 1/2 V higher at the generator or ~1/2 V lower 
at the fuse box.

If it's less than 13.5 V at the battery, replace the voltage 
regulator with a Bosch 30-019. If you can't find one locally, I have 
them for $45.

Low system voltage makes the FI run rich.
