Question Do cold air intakes save on...

gas mileage? If so, any ideas what the estimated percent is. What about a cold air intake with a more free flow exhaust set-up? Just thinking of a way to get better gas mileage out of my car.

Thanks

no wont really improve mileage or make a noticable difference in mileage.tell us what type of vehicle, and you might get some suggestions on improving mileage.

better mpg

Air Cold Intake and high performance muffler will give you better acceleration and maybe some HP but not better gas mileage.
Install some really good spark plugs for better combustion,switch to premium gas for better gas mileage and performance in my case they deliver.

Don't forget the splitfire spark plugs and the tornado intake. Waste of money and unless you can see actual dyno numbers then your money will serve you better elsewhere.

Premium fuel in a vehicle set up for 87 octane is a waste.

It depends on the engine
But not really - it won't save enough gas to pay for it self
It may free up some horsepower, but not save fuel

By far, the absolute most proved way to save the most in fuel costs is to modify your driving habits
Way more than any mod, a/c-window, tailgate up/down (which it's actually better up btw), spark plugs, tire pressure....

Drive it smooooooooooooth
No stabbing accelerator or brakes, no pedal to the metal

It's amazing the difference
(for reference AAA has the most recent study I've seen)
