has anyone used a K and N filter under the hood or outside the car with the intake...I have a 95 ford taurus gl 3.0 (not the sho) and im looking to improve gas milage I get 17 mpg in the city on average and id like it to be better than that (no I dont race around either)...also how much mpg increase did you get im curious
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
it hellped me though, it did NOTHING to my power, but help my MPG drasticly... if anything i think it might have robbed my power but idc right now, with gas going up to 4 a gallon soon, power is the last thing i want
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..
