normal daily driving, I really haven't seen any difference. Now when I put the peddle down, it definitely will use the extra gas that it needs

Are you guys using regular unleaded or 91 or 93 octane fuel? and if not does it really make a difference with the superchargers?

I use 93 unleaded. I'm not sure that would be a requirement though 91 should be fine. It is going to depend a lot on your tune and what you want out of it.

They are great and will last for years. We supercharge everything we drive and in the end you get better millage because you are not into the pedal as much for normal driving. In the end it all depends on how you drive.
