Has anyone even figured out how much they will save in the long run when you subtract the costs? Will a 2-3 mpg increase even pay for itself? Things worth considering... Breaking even = is it even worth your time investment? Short answer is no, or maybe.
$0.02

If you drive 20,000 miles a year at 10mpg that would be 2000 gallons of fuel. Same miles with an 11 mpg avg and it would be 182 gallons less. Do the math?
