Pretty much. Good for cars or trucks that didn't have it from factory.
I've read about people disabling it from dodge trucks and they report about a 1mpg reduction in milage.

It would be interesting to test that out using various driving habits.

My ram being an 02 doesn't have MDS and I average about 420km per tank 85% highway 15% city. That's with cruise set at 105 km/h and RPM just under 2k. I also have a tonneau cover and a bed full of tools.

They price the unit around $250 for Chrysler vehicles.

Mine is a 4.7 H.O 4x4 with a 98l tank and 3.92 rear end. I will have to do a real test in the summer to see the mpg.
