    Anyone ever used or heard good things about the Volo FS3 OBD-II Fuel Saver Chip. It isn't one of those $20 chips that hook up to your air intake (doesn't work...been there and done that). It hooks up under the steering wheel under your dash.

    Normally those chips are just lies. I wouldn't worry about it. If there was a magic way to save gas Toyota and everyone on TW would have jumped on board.
