Fuel efficient mods opens the door to their advertising supporters. This could be the next big business for the import suppliers if the would just create a already needed demand for fuel efficient products aero mods, LR tires etc (not snake oil crap)
Exactly, it also gives us credibility. They will also have access to items and test methods beyond the average EM member (they don't get rid of project cars normally). This will be good for separating the unicorns out.

To those complaining of the cost of the items: The quality and craftsmanship of the some of the items gives us something to shoot for in our own fabrication.

Shooting for 600 miles of range at 65-70 mph out of a vx.
