Absolutely. My average fuel economy with my new Mustang was steadily increasing over time even before I found ecomodder.com and made adjustments to my driving technique and commuting route. I can only attribute that increase to engine and tire break-in. I'm not looking forward to the FE hit I'll take when I have to re-tire it.
