Sometimes it gets down to this. I have had thoughts of doing the exact same thing that discussed in the original post and for the same reason. The dollar value of 40 MPG in summer vs the 38.2 I got last summer is minimal, but the satisfaction would be terrific.

06 Canyon: The vacuum gauge plus wheel covers helped increase summer 2015 mileage to 38.5 MPG, while summer 2016 mileage was 38.6 MPG without the wheel covers. Drove 33,021 miles 2016-2018 at 35.00 MPG.

22 Maverick: Summer 2022 burned 62.74 gallons in 3145.1 miles for 50.1 MPG.
