    Re: Gas mileage

    Don't floor it after each stopsign or stop light. go the speed limit. oil change, air filter, tire pressure.

    exahust. cold air intake. tornado fuel thing. throttle body spacers will but there about a waste of money in my opinion. basically you want your car to get more air in and get it out as quick as possible.

    Re: Gas mileage

    check you tire pressure

    Keep your car junk free(more weight is bad for MPG)

    Cold air intake

    High flow exhaust

    Re: Gas mileage

    Driving habits can make the biggest improvements in milage, don't follow so closely and honestly find a style where you rarely if ever use your brakes. Think about it after each time you jump on the brakes you jump right back on the throttle, just go easy and relax behind the wheel. Otherwise basic tune up stuff and keeping the vehicle in good condition as stated above, Tire pressure is a biggie, clean oil, proper plug gap, clean air filter. I have never tried it but possible if its gettin worse try some injector cleaner.

    What kind of vehicle is it?
