Airtab® Fuel Savers are designed to perform on tractors, trailers, straight trucks, cargo vans, RVs and Buses. Any big box going down the road at highway speeds is a candidate for Airtabs™.
Snake oil. Everyone knows you can't increase the fuel mileage on a Sportsmobile. It's an ever decreasing proposition. No matter that you add or remove, or what it promises, you're going to get 1-2 mpg less per item. I'm down to about 2 gallons per mile at this point I think.

You do have about the worst possible motor ever created for gas mileage though!

Um. A little different, since I need almost 4 gallons of oil.

That looks like Jason's Rig. I don't know his handle.
Where were you? He is living in Northern Oregon when last we spoke.
He is the smokejumper, and often lives in his for stretches. He was at the Overland Expo West last May...
