I recently purchased a 2012 Cruze Eco Automatic and thought I'd join the group to learn some things.
I'm a 58 year old strength and conditioning coach and wrangler.
I'm also very technology challenged so forgive me for any mistakes I make posting.
Not sure if I can go ahead and ask a couple questions here, but guess I'll give it a go.
I'm looking to do any easy to do modifications if it will improve power and fuel mileage. I'd like plug'n'play and be able to do myself (I also have zero mechanical acumen). And I'd like to be able to continue to use regular gasoline.
Also wouldn't mind improving my head and fog lights capability.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
I purchased a small chip to run the car rich on fuel ($45) and wired into the mass airflow sensor and came with all the crimps to wire it in, just needed a small flat head and a pair of wire cutters/strippers.. with the turbo I get a decent kick in the torque, killed my fuel mileage though, I average 24.4 as of yesterday (all highway D:)

I switched my spark plugs to copper ngks which there are a few threads on here about that I think you'd find interesting

Switching to premium is a definite almost instant result. I don't prefer it because I've always heard mixed opinions so I just avoid it. I run NOS brand fuel system TREATMENT roughly every oil change with a tank of shell nitro V power, the car runs really well on that week and it keeps the carbon build up to a minimum for fuel ups to come!

I hope that helps, congrats and welcome!!
