Improving gas mileage and hp

Besides an intake and exhaust system I was wondering how else I could improve both gas mileage and hp in my 2012 2 door jeep wrangler. I came across this website,
G-Force High Performance Chips at Wholesale Prices - Technical Information
and was wondering if this is legit. Does anyone know out there know if this chip will really works??

Thanks,
Dominick

Nothing will improve gas mileage or HP. Buy a sports car if that is what your looking for or just dig a big hole and throw your money into it. Try searching this forum for many many answers to these questions.

You bought the wrong vehicle if your are looking for improvements in those HP and gas mileage. I wouldn't add any hocus pocus chip to mess with the factory ECM.

I always find this one funny. When I want better gas milage I jump in the Mazda, when I want to have a smile on my face I jump in the Jeep.

My Jeep gets great gas mileage sitting in the garage while I drive the Tacoma.

Punch a hole in your man card, lol.

For the OP, I don't know the difference for the JK's, but other than getting lighter, lower, and properly geared for bigger tires there isn't much you can do for gas milage.
For HP, your budget is the limit.
