2008-2011 cold air intake = better or worse fuel milage?

Hey guys. I'm interested in buying a CAI for my 2009 stricktly with the interest that it might improve my fuel milage, not performance gain.

What's your take on this?

Don't you have the stock intake with the scoop on the radiator support? If you do have the stock intake then just forget about any aftermarket intake.
