Has Anybody tried Taylor helix throttle body spacer

I found a throttle body spacer on summit racing by the company Taylor Helix, I was wondering if anyone has installed one yet and if it makes any difference in fuel mileage. I know it's not going to do anything dramatic, but even an extra mile or two a gallon would be worth it to me.

Pass on it. A tuner is a better investment

I kinda figured it was bs, just thought I'd ask. Thanks y'all! Does anyone have a brand of tuner to suggest? Again I'm not looking for power gains, Im only worried about squeezing a couple more mpg out of it. It's not getting bad mileage (well for what it is) I do routine maintenance on it, just looking to make it more economical to drive daily.
