A myth is that novice drivers are not as hard...

Hehe, my results are around 15-18mpg all the time as I am city driving too.

Traction control off on an AWD car did not make a difference. It just happens to be that he had it off. Correlation does not equal causation. He was driving for a year in Eco mode and trying to...

I agree with the above. The transmission behavior you recorded looks pretty normal.

The transmission will adapt a bit to driving style. The sport modes still lock you out of 8th gear and that...

Wait what???

Ummm

Price: The ER33 is a whopping $254 per front tire and $262 per rear tire. This is an insanely poor value. Keep in mind Bridgestone will not even sell this as a consumer...

It appears this device only attenuates the MAF (MAS?) sensor.

Are you only attenuating mass airflow or intake air temperature as well?
