I tend to agree with this.

Limiting the intake and reducing the exhaust results in higher MPGs.

If you limit how much the engine can "combust", you reduce your fuel consumption.

I tend to think that increasing airflow to the engine HURTS your mpgs.
Likewise for the exhaust...

Smaller exhaust pipes and thinner wheels == better MPGs
