I try to drive downhill! Seriously, the use of Gas Buddy to save MONEY on fuel purchases has been the most effective IMHO. Cost per gallon can vary greatly by state and/or county. I estimate a savings of $.10 to $.30/gallon by planning fuel stops instead of just pulling over when the fuel tank gets low.

LOL!!!!

If those spark plugs made a difference, every car company in the world would be using them.

I stayed at the RV park for a week and didn't use as much gas that week.

I remember similar claims about another spark plug called the split fire. This was several years ago. They are still sold, but I haven't heard many positive testimonials for quite some time. I understand that the Federal Trade Commission is also investigating them.

I have E3's in my motorcycles and they do start with a lot less effort. I have not put them in any 2 strokes yet but a couple of guys I know have put them in their chainsaws and commented that they start and run a lot better.

I have a vintage JC Whitney catalog from the 50's and if I could still get a lot of their products, I'm sure that I would actually be saving more gas then I am using. I'd probably have to drain the tank at the end of the day.
