Reading one of the Chip advertisers on this site and they say the chip will add 3-6 miles per gallon?
ANYONE have that experience when you added a chip?????

I find it hard to believe, looking for the real story.:mob:
(maybe it has a miniature hybrid unit inside ;)

Was that from one of our supporting vendors, or from a banner ad?

The only chips that will change mpg are potato chips. Eat too many, pack on the pounds and LOSE mpgs!

I'm running 2 of those chips in parallel for 6-12 MPG improvement. They are installed in both of my muffler tips and work great.

Yeah, no, sorry. Our gas mileage sucks and there's not much that can be done about that.

This is all crap... type SLR Motorsports in to google... you'll immediately see most common searches for it... saying theyre fake... which they are... these are the exact same ones u see people on ebay trying to sell, advertising "50+ mpg, 50+ hp".... And all u get from them is a stupid 50 cent resistor. Plus, if Subaru or any other dealer could give u +50mpg for real cheap, wouldn't every car maker out there have cars shelling out 70mpg? Not even the typical hybrids can do that.

Aah, the joys of running Google ads. They are a necessary evil and I actually do try to filter out the BS ones when I catch them. Keep in mind they are NOT Endorsed by us and realistically we would much rather that members support our vendors over others, including the Google advertisers. Thanks for asking and as I said, I do try to keep the BS ads out of here.

Used wrong measurements... not 3-6 mpg increase.... 3-6 lb increase. blame it on the cho, cho, cho cho, cho chocolate chips.

I installed all the gas saving devices in the J. C. Whitney catalog, and now I'm thinking of opening up my own gas station there's so much extra gas pouring out of my tank! I've gotta do something about it before I set the whole place on fire!

Ha ha ha.......good one, Bruce! Hey, I have a warehouse full of Turbinator Vortexes that I'd like to sell since they're SO effective........effective at performing a painful cashectomy on anyone foolish enough to buy one.

Just wait to see how many "fuel-savings" gadgets come out this summer when the gas prices spike again.......that's if the economy ever rebounds enough to cause gas to be in shorter supply again......

Sorry, Steve, but you'll have to sign up as a supporting vendor to offer those Turbinator Vortexes here. Fees are quite reasonable. Just send me your credit card number , including the expiration date and the three-digit code on the back, and I'll take care of it all for you!
