Hows your mileage doing with the PVI

I have it on my truck and also ran it with my
stroked motor and in my opinion they do work

Also 3 customers are running the system and they
all have gained gas mileage with them 1 to 3mpg

They do work

I am at 130000 miles or so, 94 Sport.
Engine is still good, on third transmission though (automatic) The third one was probably Aamco's fault, and they fixed it under warranty. I drive it pretty hard sometimes, but nothing it shouldn't be able to handle.

Gas milage though, isnt too great, I think I could probably use new O2 sensor and some other things...

on long highway trips I get an average of 17 mpg (averaging 75-80 mph not counting stops) I have K&N filter and a generic high-flow muffler as the only mods of any kind.

I just got a 88 Dakota with the 3.9L, AT and 158k miles on it. I just ran my first full tank of gas doing mostly city type driving and got 17mpg. I haven't had it on a hwy trip yet.

It starts easy and runs great. It has some body damage. IT does however stall once in a while until I get it warmed up. Almost like a dead spot in the carb.

I have a 2000 quad cab 94000k still have all original everything incl tires, think the ball joints are going, but since i took off the tail gate and installed one of those sidewinder nylon mesh ones, i can drive 390kms on half a tank of gas, my wife has a 2003 s-10 and she is lucky if she can go 200km on a half a tank, anyhoo i love my truck but screw dodge for puting crappy ball joints in.

I can't seem to see much difference in mileage with the PVI on my Dakota. I have put about 1200 miles on it since installing it. I am getting about 17.7 to 19.1 in the city and 20 to 22.2 Highway. Not bad but like power you always want more. I put one on my wifes 96 tahoe with 350 and It has gone from 13.5 - 14.1 city driving to 15.7 to 15.9 city. Have not made any trips in it so I dont know about highway but the best it ever got before was 15.6 so I am sure it would be better.
