These types of products have been proven to be useless. A gentle foot is going to be your best fuel saver.

Definitely a waste of money. If you're looking to get better mpg's you could replace those 24's with some 22's and smaller tires, that will help you out some and you will feel more power from the S/C.

Remember those tornado things?

Besides, this looks like something that you can make from home if you wanna try it, just looks like a funnel of some kind. Email them and ask how this could improve a motor that has a blower on it, which is already getting gazillions of air forced in.....

I always ask, if that little plastic ring will improve mileage and performance, why doesn't the factory install them?

Thanks, lance
Let us put this to the test. I will contact the company and explain that I do fuel economy research and development and that I would be interested in testing their product. I will let them know that I am a member of both TS and TT as well as the Fuel Economy Moderator at TS. Reputable company will provide a product for testing, disreputable company will not respond or will say that I can buy product and return in 60 days if dissatisfied.

I will also include a link to this thread as well as post their response (if any).

Here is the email I sent to the company president, senior vice president, and vice president:

Hello,

I do fuel economy research and development for the Toyota Tundra. I have taken my truck from around 15 MPG on the highway to the low 20's. I have my own Blog where I write about my research and experiences Tundra Fuel Economy and although a very serious family matter necessitated a break from my posting back in March I am getting back into the mode of testing and writing again. I am very interested in testing your product and am inquiring as to if you wold consider providing a Mileage Edge Plus fuel saving device for testing and review?

In addition to having my own Blog I am also a member of
Tundra Talk, a Tundra forum with 51,246 members http://www.tundratalk.net/forums/ and
Tundra Solutions Forum with 178,226 members Toyota Tundra Forums : Tundra Solutions Forum where I am also the Fuel Economy Forum Moderator

I look froward to your response.

Best regards,

Toby
