    Thanks for all the info. I greatly appreciate it. Will try exhaust first then go from there.

    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.

    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?
