Read this about your turbonator.

As for improving gas mileage, its more about how you drive. Keep the RPMs low (<2k) and basically drive like grandma. Of course the Eco system is looking promising but at $200 installed its not cheap.

If your saving a few bucks then its all good right? As for that Eco System there is a thread goin that looks promising. The link is below. I'm going to buy one more for the added performance and what I expect will be a small if at all noticable MPG improvement. Apprently dealerships are offering these so there must be something more than a gimmick to them.
