TommyHolly and smithdt, here are a couple of recent posts addressing performance and MPG with the IICE Air:

It is possible also that my bike drinks a half a liter less every hundred kilometers, but I cannot state this for sure. For sure, I'm waiting the Cool!

Ah, one more: installing it requires more time to choose where to place and how the Air, because of the lack of an appropriate space in the frame, than the time needed to unscrew the six screws and unplug the sensor and set again everything.
My best compliments, Poolside, and thanks for the time you devoted to develop that idea.

Very happy, very impressed
Others have reported similar results. But it's also like JJ says, a bike's MPG is primarily based on how enthusiastic you get with the throttle. It varies within a range. Very much like the answers you get when you ask how many miles people get from a set of tires.

Some people ride in a higher gear with the IICE Air fitted, and that can improve mileage.
