How about this?
FAS only applies to hybrids that have an auto-stop feature.
EOC is what normal ICE's do. Since I don't have a hybrid, I put the tranny in neutral, turn the key off and EOC.

I agree - technically FAS doesn't apply to non-hybrids.

The problem with using EOC is that sometimes we do Engine On Coasting too.

I think CODFISHing was a tongue in cheek response to coming up with a better acronym than FAS for the majority of GS members without hybrids.

I calculate my mileage, and there could be errors, but overall I was getting about 2mpg more
average...

Now don't take this the wrong way or anything

But there's no such thing as the "no dobut" test At least not with any verifiable/repeatable testhing.

The easiest way to test.... Do A-B-A testing with a paper element and your new muffler Even compare to no filter at all o.0 I've stayed away from oiled, washable filters based only on oil analysis testing -- In almost all cases, much higher silica numbers My point is... simply testing flow isn't necessarily a complete test - after all, it's a filter so a good question is "how good does it filter?"

I believe that a freer exhaust can help. Air filter, no.

Learn the real truth behind oil additives

Find out the real truth on oil additives. What the oil companies don't want you to know.

Welcome to the site.

Do you have any data to back up the claims beside how much money the company grossed last year if so start a new thread on it if not you need to put this under the for sell forum.

Does anyone know anything about throttle body spacers? I have been looking but can find no independent reviews.

They claim that they increase intake manifold plenum volume gas mileage and power by causeing the incoming air charge to tumble for better atomization of the mixture downstream in the combustion chamber. It looks like the same theory as the tornado and other products, but instead of creating turbulence right after the filter, it raises the throttle body and has small grooves in it. Simple solutions are most often the best, but this seems too simple and I realy don't understand how hundrids of automotive engineers could miss somthing so obvious. Here is one of their websites.
