I get such a kick out of the computer picked ads here.

Today's is for Throttle Body Spacer - Fuel Saving Device for Better Gas Mileage - Econoaid

Looks like a throttle body spacer with groves that remind me of helical cut gears, but on the inside.

Bet adding it to my truck would get an additional 10MPG
Awwww, they don't make them for diesels

They have them for Prii http://www.econoaid.com/Econoaid_boo...ius_p/1017.htm and Hummers http://www.econoaid.com/Increase_Mil...ottle_s/41.htm

Wait, waaaitt, I get it ! Buying one aids the sellers economy !

Sad part is, people will buy it and swear it works. Oh well. Carry on.

I'd bet $100 that my 2007 Mustang could get over 31 MPG (in warmer weather) with one of those. Oh, wait, never mind, it already does.
