A high rpm cam will waste more gas at idle but deliver more power at high RPM, conversely a low RPM cam saves gas at low RPM but stunts power at high RPM. decide what you want and pay the penalty, gas or power.

Assuming you read somewhere about how a different cam will make your car soo much faster ??

C'mon... Logic should tell you that increased performance Certainly will cost you More Gas !!

sure it will use more gas with a performance cam as it adds more fuel to the fire.
