In a weird kind of way its reassuring to read that we all feel the pain of the pump. On a personal positive note, big oil signs my paycheck. Let all drive like we stole it.....job security! JK

Haha, that's funny right there!

Tornado/vornado/vortex/throttle body spacer. They're all gimmicks to get your money. They were originally designed to raise carbuerators a bit to immitate a high-rise style. But being with 99% of gas/diesel injected vehicles are now "direct injection" instead of "indirect injection" they really serve no point. If you have an older "inderect injection" vehicle it might actually serve a purpose. FWIW, here's my .02

The key for me is not speeding, at least not too much... wel, not all the time!
Wow...thats very low MPG...right now im getting around 11-13 city and 17-19 highway (80-90 MPH)...im getting the 2* TA tomorrow...so hopefully it wouldnt reduce my MPG .

If it does get worse, you can always change it back!

Well so far I think that your problem is that you bought yourself a phat V8 which you shouldn't even expect this beast to hate gas. 2*TA, synthetic oil change, and air in the tires have helped me so far. My foot is quite lighter than usual except when I see someone driving like a granny-goose. The only thing I want next is my CAI. She' always so thirsty. Luckily I work only 5 minutes away from me and that's including lights. If you have to drive far...buy a bike.
