I removed my 17" wheels with the 235/45's and stuck the old 15" wheels with 205/65's back on. My car routinely gets 20mpg and I do alot of highway driving with mixed city dirving. After two tanks of gas and the same driving pattern my MPG is 24.

So now I turned off my Apten chip to see what happens....

It's kinda wierd driving around a stock looking Taurus again. The shifts are so smooth and the car looks totally unassuming, albiet lowered. The only thing that looks out of place are the two stainless MagnaFlows peeking out from under the rear bumper.

Same here, but my gas mileage doesnt seem to be affected by the chip nor the wheels. I routinely get 23-24mpg as long as I dont have a bunch of spirited driving.
