100% mpg gains seen...no driving techniques used...

http://www.mpgresearch.com/viewtopic.php?t=1782


"I have been busy doing consulting work for a company that is offering a fuel economy based kit. Along with the kit, the program includes trained and certified installers. I developed the class and have been teaching them for the last couple of weeks. I'm proud to reveal that with few exceptions, we've been doubling the mileage on everything that goes through the class. It can be done, guys."

"A couple of the exceptional specimen's are a '98 Airstream Class A Motor home that went from 6.8 mpg to 20.75; a 2006 Mazda 3 that has got a 121 and a 123 mpg run; and finally a '99 Mercury Grand Marquis that went from 26 to 85 mpg."

And emissions?

We aren't making it complicated. Simply putting resistors across thermisters and our own version of the EFIE. It is refined for cold start warm-up, but I haven't wandered much from the things here on this forum. In fact, the whole program was developed with mpgResearch opened in front of me.

Wonder if these are tank numbers or just the highest they've seen on a SG or whatever they are using.

I have talked with Mike at mpgResearch about this. He was, by the way, the one who did the work on my cylinder head(s). Since he is doing consulting for another company, he is not legally able to discuss much in the way of details. Also, if I understand correctly, he won't directly profit from the sale of these kits either so he has nothing to gain by fudging the results that he reported. He was paid before any of the kits were sold/installed. Caution is necessary when questioning the integrity of someone who is reporting better than average results. I'm sure that COZX2 could agree with that.
