Muffler Question

If a car did not have a muffler would it get better gas mileage?

No, it would get worse fuel mileage, be illegal and sound like a bus on crack. Lol.

No backpressure at all, nothing to stop the flames (in case of a backfire type explosion in the exhaust), arrest the noise, or provide quiet while driving.

It's unhealthy and illegal.
