Which Forum for MPG Mods?

Which forum discusses mods that boost MPG? Specifically, I'm looking for a list of mods that boost MPG divided by their costs. This would give a "biggest boost for buck" ratio. Thanks!

http://www.cleanmpg.com/ is a good one.

But with all things internet you have to keep in mind that a good many things may be vehicle/year/model specific.
But then there are things like tires that will apply to all vehicles, thinner motor oils, vehicle weight, etc.
I would say if you find this list you're looking for, don't believe a word of it. I only trust information I double check for myself and I take no one at face value.

Thanks for the info and wisdom there.

Still looking for the correct Forum here to discuss MPG mods. Is this the right one? (Would be for a 2008 SES FF.)

You have two main choices for MPG talk for your car, although there aren't any dedicated to maximizing MPG's.
This forum is for Second Generation Ford Focus (2008-2011) "The place to chat about general questions, window tinting, exterior body, interior and lighting upgrades for the 2008-2011 Focus."
This forum is for DURATEC Performance Chat "The place to chat about any Duratec DI Ti-VCT, 23, 23E, and 20 engine performance, tuning and exhaust related upgrades."


There is not a specific forum to talk strictly about mpg mods per se. It will either be broken down by generation and motor in your car, unless its non-model specific talk. Usually any mod that improves MPG would take many miles to get the gas savings to pay for itself.

Thanks for the navigation tips! very helpful.

MPG mods pay for themselves right away when you sell.

Eh, spoke too soon. That first forum looks to be non-performance mods only.
