Gas-saving products

There are dozens of products on the market that claim to "save gas" and "dramatically increase your miles per gallon." This article provides a nice summary of their effectiveness in these couple of sentences:

The "MythBusters" on The Discovery Channel recently aired an episode on gas saving techniques and devices. Their premise was that the automotive and petrol industries were in cahoots to "force" an ineffective combustion method on consumers to sustain high petrol prices. The MythBusters found this to be a fallacy. Although, they did prove that a diesel engine + filtered vegetable oil from your local restaurant = a cheap ride.
K&N air filters hav added about 1.5 mpg but adds a noticeable change in the torque curve to the cars my family has used it on.

The main difference in the Matrix and Matrix GT is that air filter.
