No because colder air means more fuel.

Any upgrades to the intake side are gas mileage killers in most instances with computer controller engines.

The Mass Air Flow Sensor will read the air and how cold it is. Colder the Air the more fuel it needs to keep the car running 14.7 Air Fuel Ratio.

If you want better mileage the best things to do is drop air resistance and open up the exhaust sides of your car.

Im not even sure if the K&N filter in the stock box is better for gas.. But I couldnt care less I like my performance when I can get it. The CAI is now back on the car.

That comparison is like comparing a 16 Liter Semi truck engine to a lawn mower...

But hey if you do all that good for you bud.

Obviously a jet creates more pollution than a car per person for a single trip, but the difference is orders of magnitude less than you said. Keep your mindless hyperbole on fox news where it belongs and let us use actual science.
So I guess a lard ass like Newt Gingrich would use much more fuel. LMAO

Fox (News) Thats a joke right? Most of their viewers are semi retarded and would not know or believe the facts even if Hank Wiliiams Jr or Dale Earnhardt Jr told them.

I wasn't aware that a study was done on the viewers of cable channels. I suppose I'll check the DNC web site (http://www.liars.com) to see what I can find out.
