It's a device for dispensing candy (pez), because picking individual candy pieces up by hand is just... so hard.

Ok, so now if I get a PEZ dispensor and duct tape, does that mean I can get 12% better mileage? Do the tape and the dispensor have to be color coordinated to the car, or is it better to use some obscure unique color's?

i customized my pez dispensor for aerodynamics and now my top speed in the 1/4 mile went up 2mph. AND i got .5mpg just by clipping 2 coils in the spring!

I seem to get better MPG when I wash the car off clean especially the hood and nose - waxing it helps too making it nice and smooth and slippery. This warmer air is also less dense and I have seen Air Intake temps in the 80-95 degree range.

I noticed the exact same thing with my pez dispenser. I also noticed that my FE increases by over 20% when I go downhill. That is because my fuel gauge moves toward the full mark by about 20%.

I didn't notice any improvement in MPG since adding all the race tape. It LOOKS like it should help, but so did removing the antenna and wipers. Maybe I need to be going 100 mph to notice any difference in fuel economy.

BTW, duct tape is garbage, and I don't care what color we're talking about. Buy race tape. It costs more, but it really does hold.
