I got back from a run to California and back early this week, about 3000 miles in total. I got better than 17 for every tankful with the exception of the run up the mountain from Kingman AZ to Flagstaff, where I got 15.8. I kept the cruise set to 70 consistently.

Tall extended 2016 usually around 17.8 (according to dash readout) running 75-80 mph. Sometimes it is in the 18's. Returning from the mountains it's over 20 mpg.

Nicest packaging of a scam I have seen.
There have been similar spinning-in-the-intake scams since I started driving and working on vehicles in the 1960s. None of them do anything of value, except for the seller.

Action 4 investigation: Net gain, zero.


Channel 5: Net gain, zero.


BTW, these tests are from 10 years ago. Same thing with yours. You really think if you could boost fuel mileage with a $40 gadget, it would still be unknown after all these years?
