Re: Another Fuel Gimmick? Or Legit?

I don't even understand what it does..... I'd spend my money elsewhere. What is the point in trying to squeeze another 2 MPG?

Cause when I'm spending $60-$80 a week on gas another 12.5% increase in fuel efficiency (16->18) means I save $7.50-$10.00 a week. That's a big difference in my mind.

Not to mention any performance gains.

Re: Another Fuel Gimmick? Or Legit?

If you were really concerned about MPG's, you wouldn't be running lifted with 265/70's, a brush guard, and a roof rack.

Also, usually performance gains = MPG losses.

It's a lot when I can't work due to cold weather. I sell plants at a nursery. Just means 2mpgs would be all the more valuable to you

The Jeep for offroading's a must. Any mileage gains I can get out of it are great. I would just buy a Prius if I didn't care about the looks and functionality I get out of my rig.

This product claims slightly improved performance as well as MPG gains. I've had such results with my CAI/exhaust so far.
