I don't like those filters...... you have to clean them from time to time. IMO it's easier to just keep buying new cheap filters.

a good tune will help your gas mileage.. but it also depends on the tune.. some make it worse but you get better peformance..

like i said in your other post.. get a tune up.. your car prolly has higher mileage and could at the minimum use some spark plugs

a chip?? chips usually drastically decrease your gas mileage..... usually the point of an after market chip is to throw more gas in per cylinder to increase hp/ and it makes your emissions worse too. dont get me wrong tho. chips are sweet. but not for saving gas

the cheap so called chips just fool the computer to thinking its getting colder air into the intake track.. colder air is more dense so it needs more fuel.. thus killing gas mileage but giving you slightly increase performance.. but youll run richer and can fowl plugs

a true tune will actually increase power/mileage .. but also they are expensive and pointless for n/a cars..

seriously just get yourself a tuneup
