Well I can tell you that it works. I have been saving gas buy watching my throttle position. I keep it at 28-30% all the time and I get 17-20 mpg highway now. Also I have a real temp gauge now. Best product I ever bought for the truck.

What does everyone here think?

Who has one and is it worth the 160 bucks?

Let me know your thoughts. . . .

It helps me get about 30-50 more miles per tank. I say it's worth it.

30-50 is a lot, it would pay for itself in no time at all it seems

You just have to watch yourself. Stay at one throttle position on the freeway. If I come up to a hill I let the truck slow down and I move over to the slow lanes. Then I gain all the speed back and then some on the downhill. If it's a really steep hill and the truck slows down too much then I have to step on it.

It keeps you from using to much throttle when it's not needed.

I LOVE MINE!! Best little gadget ever!!

It doesn't get you better mileage...because its just a gauge. BUT....it shows you what your mileage is at that moment, and you get to learn just how much fuel is being used, when it doesn't need that much throttle to run perfectly fine. I GAINED 2mpg a tank after installing this neat little gadget!
