Mpg questions

Will it always go down with mods, or will some actually raise it? i'm not asking for a magic performance and mpg gain in one product, but surely theres something (other than my driving habits) that will raise my mpg right?

Think about it this way. You spend $350-400 to increase 1-2mpg.

Using 20mpg and $3.50/ gallon, and a length of 50k miles as baseline

50,000/20 = 2,500 gallons
2,500x3.50 = $8750

50,000/22 = 2273 gallons
2,273x3.5 = $7954

As you can see it takes quite a few miles before you recoupe the cost of what it took to get that small extra mpg. Which most of the time the way you drive affects mpg more than any "mod"
