My primary mileage is highway (10-15% rural "city"), and my averages virtually didn't change with the intake swap. By "virtually" I mean that any small change I saw +/- were no different than how average MPG can fluctuate due to many factors.
I believe he said three tanks, with mainly cruise-control highway driving. After removing the Typhoon his mileage was back up within two tanks.

I had skepticism also, but I experienced the same thing with my Newmission mod. After having it on for a month or more, I still could not get over 30 mpg when my standard pre-Newmission was 32.5...
