Orp Vs Mpg?

Hi! I wondering when you put an ORP, in normal daily driving, do your consumption raise or lower?


Im considering installing an ORP. For now I just have a K&N air filter and Im getting 28~30mpg in normal daily driving (70% city, 30% road).


Tks for all the answers

An orp shouldn't have any effect on your gas mileage unless you start pushing the right foot down a little more often.

^^^my thought's exactly.

ORP = no change in consumption
Sweet louder sound = "ooh, listen to me drive fast" = more consumption

I gained MPG with mine just due to the improved flow.

ORP= decrease due to the fact that no one can keep thier foot out of the gas after they get one.

I just put one on a couple of weeks ago and I love it, sounds great and has a little more butt dyno. Was worth it, but yea you will lose some mpg due to operator error lol

My thoughts exactly. New toys ALWAYS decrease gas mileage.
