    Check this product out:

    It is the missing piece in my puzzle.

    Fuel Saver 27%
    Spark Plugs 10%
    Muffler 10%
    Pulleys 5%
    Tornado 23%
    K&N 7%
    Synthetic Lube 8%
    Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge 6%
    Spoilers/Wings 3%
    Wax Job 1%
    Total = 100% fuel savings

    I am now at 100% efficiency, and never have to stop for gas!! The miracle of science. Any more fuel efficient mods and I'll have to stop and take some gas out.

    P.S. I did borrow this post from another forum but it was too good to pass up.

    That's pretty funny. Sounds like wacky science to me......

    How does a K&N filter save gas? It increases intake airflow which actually increases vehicle drag.

    A spolier/wing does not make a car anymore efficient either - it adds weight and parasitic drag when set up to provide zero downforce, and it ads weight, parasitic drag, and induced drag when set up to provide downforce. The only time a "spoiler" may help is if it is designed such that it reduces the amount of base drag at the back of the car, but even then it adds weight and parasitic drag which probably offsets the benefit of reducing base drag.

    Is it just me or has someone missed the humour in this post?

    There's a sucker born every minute!

    "What seems clear is that the Fuel Saver people are in the business of selling Fuel Savers and focus more on marketing gobbledygook than truthful advertising. "

    The above is a clip of a full article found at www.skepdic.com/inset.html
