there should be guide lines in the install section, i think.

basically, you should clean out the throttle body and maf sensor.

my car's been eating gas too. i just replaced my Air Filter, spark plugs (denso iridiums), oil, and used seafoam in the gas tank.

im gonna clean the t/b and maf later on as well. thumbsup

Temperature really affects mileage in our cars as I found out. I lost 10mpg this winter. Above 50 degrees and I get nearly 30, below 40 and I'm in the low 20s. thumbsdown
