Readers driven to...save on gas

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/featu...,5133975.story

this is another update of my local paper asking for fuel saving tips. altho the author used another (hypermiler) in a previous story, he did use SOME of my suggestions this time. i would be the first person quoted(Scott).

he printed an abbreviated version of my email, leaving out strategies thought to be radical or unsafe perhaps.

"And if you want to spend the extra money, get a low-flow muffler that has less back pressure."

This is my favorite part.

Does a low-flow muffler work as poorly as a low-flow toilet?

An upgraded exhaust system (and an upgraded free-flow intake) may help MPG if you're always running at redline, but at low RPM there's not going to be any difference.
