Adding a capacitor to the TPS to improve mpg

I read a post recently on that social media site that referred to adding a 22-25mfd capacitor between the sensor ground and signal of the TPS sensor of a Saturn like mine.

The logic is sound. Essentially you are delivering a smaller acceleration pump shot (carb terminology) by dampening the signal to the pcm electronically. Also supposed to filter out foot jitter.

But my question to those of you more electronically savvy than me is would this make for any measurable difference in ultimate fuel consumption?

Too much junk to list. From a 10mpg caddy limo to a 5 speed Saturn
