    The best thing to do is use harness wire. If you have an old wire harness laying around that you don't need, use that.

    Try stopping by a local shop and see if they have an old harness they be willing to part with or sell cheap. I honestly wouldn't just use any old wire, especially when soldering for the O2 sensor.

    If you happen to use copper wire just make sure you don't use any smaller than 18 awg. You'll be fine
