I was just seeing if it could be diverted. Even a little. It will just mix more air hypothetically. I realize the oxygen sensor plays a part in the exhaust and it would be helpful to me if a mod to make it less sensitive would be shared. I would like you to remember if considering this that I was not trying to lose any horsepower with the goal being high mileage. It just seemed as quick. Dirt or grime can foul the Maf sensor. The copper plate could do something I don't know but the air is not flowing as close through but more around. And gas is going up. Thanks suspectnumber961 for pointing out the sensor location a bit. I will check it. I may be a little high. I would think of something to add but can't as of the moment. I am going to the pumps to get gas.

And the same trip, under the same conditions, without the mod? What mileage does that give you?

Restricting the airflow can save gas. My own very first car, a 1961 Rambler American, got 30 MPG at first. It would only go 60 MPH on a level road, slower uphill, and faster downhill. Then I found that the throttle linkage was only opening the throttle partway. Fixed that, and got 24 MPG after. But then I was driving 70 MPH.

So there. Indisputable truth that intake restriction improves MPG.
