If all you do is floor it...then no, the stages will eat more gas. If you cruise a lot. It'll probably get you up to your cruising speed a little bit easier, then you'll cruise. Thus saving money by getting you up to your cruising speed quicker and easier. Hope that makes sense....

The stock map is pig rich hence limited MPG. Even the cobb stage maps are quite a bit better about it and thus use less fuel in general. Course, they'll use MORE fuel when you put your foot down.

Hence yes, they provide better gas mileage... but only when you're trying to drive by optimum gas mileage.

BTW: 92 across the street from me is now $1.79!!
