Nah... What will effect your gas mileage is the heavy right foot stuck on that V8 gas petal... Mr. Green

At least that really messes up mine..

I dont think it will matter either way but they are advertised to increase mileage.. I guess you can tell us all.. It they give you better mileage I will put two of each on mine.. rofl

Cause with my beefed up motor and the Spooled 8.8 , 4:11 gears and heavy foot I get about 8 mpg... At stock I think I got about 16 or so..

A buddy of mine has a V8 grand (stock) and he is getting 17 in the city..

But he drives like my Great Grandma...rofl

Come to think of it he does have both the front and rear deflectors....

thanks again for the PM's and answering my ?s Carl

I'll put both on one and leave em off the other if I wind up buying the '96

then I'll compare mileage in each

I don't have a heavy right foot in the ZJ

that lil 318 feels like the old 2.3 four banger in my ranger compared to either Z28 (the 396" LT4 for the '94 made 622 hp @ the flywheel Finger on pump gas and there is still the white bottle in the back)

but she doesn't get good mileage either Rolling Eyes
