Strange, it took me right to ebays automotive section. Where was the article? :confused:

Replacing the air filter or intake is pretty well disproven to help mpg. Spark plugs are also in the same category and not buying LRR tires can lower it if you car came with them. I cant think of a situation replacing tires made the real world mpg go up.
