    Has anyone noticed a True Gas milage increase or decrease by putting on a Cold Air Intake???

    I just picked up a 2011 Tacoma, and I have the thought of possibly doing a CAI if it has the possibility of getting a little better MPG. I know on my previous car (G35 Coupe) the CAI's did nothing but give a more throaty sound.

    Anyone have any thoughts? I did search, but I did not see anything directly related.

    Few people will see increases in MPG's with CAI's. They are mostly for the sound only and don't put out performance gains in the Tacoma's, mainly because the stock intake is technically a CAI. I increased my MPG by changing out the dyno to Amsoil synthetic oil, Wix oil filter, and an Amsoil air filter. Before these changes, I would average 21 to a tank going back and forth to school at 55MPH. Now I am getting 22.8 on average. Not sure if those changes made me get better MPG's, but my driving habits haven't changed and my route hasn't changed.

    I got an increase in MPG in my 09 2.7 with an AFE intake. I got the intake for free, I don't know that I would pay $200+ for 5 more MPG's.
