    Has anyone every put one on an 09 Taco? Effects or BS? I was looking on eBay and saw some and I was curious.

    That is what I thought... I just wanted to check. I know about 10 years ago we put a actual chip in my grandparent's full size GMC truck and it towed their trailer much better and got much better MPG.

    I drive a lot and I am looking for that extra MPG on my 4 banger.

    That isn't the same as the eBay "chips" which generally consist of a resistor.

    That is a tuner. At least they have dyno's to back up their claims. I would feel more confident in the results purchasing that computer and spending the $800 versus the $40 on the eBay shit.

    I stay at 23-24 MPG now. I drive 100+ miles a day in town and interstate. I rarely ever go over 3K RPM. I think that what I get now is not bad.

    I am OCD on keeping up with mileage. I have records for miles driven every day (Business and personal) as well as every tank of gas. It is all in an Excel Spreadsheet. I have been doing this for my past 3 vehicles since 2002. Recently I have been keeping up with MPG using FuelFrog. Checkout: http://www.fuelfrog.com/users/weathersinc/fuels/dashboard
