After putting in an AEM CAI my mileage actually went down a little bit

I get 57mpg with my AEM on. Your car must be broken.

Might be that due to the HP gain, you might be getting slightly less mileage with city driving, while you'll probably get more on the highway..
I went from averaging 280 miles per tank city and 320 highway (13 gallons or so) to about 240-250 in city and over 410 on the highway.. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

im just getting k&n drop in. I hear as long as you dont floor it it will help on gas milage. as for intake the more constant you drive the more gas you save, but alot of stop and go and flooring can kill your gas.
