short answer No. Key word in there PERFORMANCE+Fuel Economy dont mix. Generally speaking most car manufactures only run their cars at 80% when released from the factory. Reason? Because cars have to meet requirements like emission standards, better fuel economy blah blah. A performance chip overrides that and basically makes the car run at 100% so down goes your fuel economy,

I agree with Andre. If you're looking for great gas mileage, just make sure the air filter stays clean, the spark plugs and wires are replace when needed, and keep your foot off the gas pedal as much as possible.

Im getting 40mpg in a 200HP RSX-S...so if youre not getting 45-50 youre slacking dude. Learn how to drive, and get all synthetic oils in your car.
