Default milage mods

Any advice on what I can do to my car to make it more fuel efficient without sacrificing alot of power??? I wanna try to get her a little more miserly with the gas before we go to war and see the prices at the pump shoot up.

Even the right chip can help. If it'* programmed like the Jet, it can determine that you're not heavy on the throttle and adjust your shiftpoints for economy.

If your concern is $$$.
Expensive mods wont off set the cost of wartime gas.
They will pay for themselves in the long run But this war wont be that long.

There are some less expensive things you can do to get more MPG for your buck.

1) Take the bus.
2) Ride a bike.
3) Carpool.
4) Get wealthy girlfriend/boyfriend. let them fill it.....mmmm nope that will be more than the mods.
5) get a wealthy girlfriend/boyfriend who ownes a gas station. Yeaa. that'* it.
