Cold Air Intake 2006 Mustang GT

Hello everyone. Quick question about adding a cold air intake. If I add a kit and flash the computer will I see any added mile per gallon with normal driving? Thanks in advance.

Personally I get 3.5 more mpg around town with a 91 octane tune than I did before the tune , if that answers your question.

i saw a 1 MPG increase with the CAi and tune. Running higher octane tunes will yield better MPG because the octane makes it harder to break down and thus better MPG. However you spend more money for the higher octane, so do the math if you'd like to, but its about even

All depends if you can keep your foot out of it. On a long drive with cruise control set I would expect a gain.
