Default Custom intake

I was reading on this in the "Techinfo" and since theres more air coming into the intake does this mean you'll have a lesser mpg, because of the air/fuel ratio?

If you keep your foot out of your new-found power after the intake install and drive like a normal person (I know, it'* not easy) you'll get BETTER mileage. We all do.

Look how far I've taken my SSEi. I get 31-32 mpg on the freeway at 70mph.

Many others are similar.
