    what if it works based on weight reduction?

    ever try driving without it on in the rain?

    Its noticeable (traction) IMHO when raining and getting on the freeway.........sadly, it leaves ur tailights easy prey (I have a pop n lock so its a lil added protection).

    Hahah when I had my old 1st gen I bought a net for it and found out I got worse mileage. Learned first hand :) then came out mythbusters testing that theory.

    People still think that higher octane equals better mileage, too. Automotive myths abound.
