LOL I'm skeptical homeless, but if you're willing to try I'd be willing to see how it turns out!

Brian, 3 mpg is not much. You might not like hearing this but you can fairly easily get a 3 mpg gain just by altering your driving habits. I've done this & gotten consistent results on all my cars. I wouldn't buy something that yeilds mediocre results. Have you done a break even analysis?

Cost per mile at 15 mpg in your truck is $0.233/mile. At 18 mpg it is $0.194/mile. So the difference is $0.04/mile after you install the product. You will have to drive how many miles @ $0.04/mile to recover your $750 bucks? Answer is $750/0.04= 18750 miles.

Worth it? Not in my book. Especially when you can do the same thing without a gimmick product.

Hey homeless, that's actually not my car, it's a pic that flatback72 photoshopped. But those rims should be 18" bullitt rims that are blacked out. Check out American Muscle, they have those rims.

That car is my inspiration!

I drive a lot too...many months 5k miles. I clocked 2k miles just last week. My answer was to get a very reliable but very cheap to operate driver car. Itcurrently has just shy of 300k miles. My car of choice...a VW Golf TDI diesel.

I recently bought its replacement a 2010 Jetta TDI.
[Image: 50906.png] I bought this car because I was going to give the golf to my 17 year old son. He wanted a mustang so now I have 2 TDIs. I like the new car better but the golf is very peppy and has 200k more miles left in it. I'm thinking about selling the Jetta and continuing the mission with the golf.

Here's a link to fuelly where you can compare the different cars and trucks & gas vs. diesel of the same model.

Appx price of a 00/03 model Golf or Jetta appx $4500.

Let's just leave it that $764 buys a lot of fuel.

I bought a gas truck because I couldn't justify the $7000 premium of a diesel truck. I did the math and to amortize the cost of the diesel engine over the gas, it would take nearly 450K miles, and there is no guarantee of what MPG I would have gotten with the diesel.

If you want to save gas, drive less, plan your routes better and keep your foot out of it. If you want something to help you, get a ScanGauge II. It's $150 or so and does a lot more than just instant mileage...
