Default GForce performance chip?

Does anyone have any experience with or comments on the GForce Performance Chip for the PT Cruiser?

After watching my milage drop from 22.2 mpg (mostly highway) last fill-up to 18.3 mpg (mostly city) this fill-up, the prospect of improving my mpg 6 or 7 miles per gallons is a particularly attractive one, if it's not too good to be true;-)

(I searched the forums, but couldn't find anything?)

Thanks Ray! (I did a search for GForce performance chip, and for some reason this thread didn't come up?)

I have gotten a hair over 25 MPG over 110,000 miles on my PT.
What works -
Clean air filter - an intake kit seems to help
good plugs and wires
Synthetic oil (and it keeps engine happy)
CHECK YOUR TIRE PRESSURE frequently. I go 2-3 PSI above the door sticker, since tires lose air.
Accelerate gradually
if light ahead is red, take your foot off the gas
