What is this I hear that you can push the button on the Odometer and you get a burst of speed. Is this for real ???

I think thats just the added momentum from your body moving forward to press the button. I knew someday taking physics would pay off. LOL

not really a burst of speed just makes ur engine rev higher and harder , i use mine when going uphills and it revs at 5,000 rpms making it easier to get up hills at like 90mph , but due to the fact of ur engine running harder it sucks gas like a mofo.

I would tend to believe this. not button that give burst but when you lean forward to push it you unknowingly press gas a littler harder but you mentally think you get a burst of speed by pressing button but in actuallity you are press gas pedal a little more for that second that you lean for to press the button. so you get the burst from the small increase in pressing on the gas not pressing the button.

now if you want to get really confused technically pressing the button does cause a burst of speed but it is due to other series of event in association with pressing the button but not actually pushing the button itself.:D Confused.. lol

If you drive on the bumps/reflectors on the sides of the road and between lanes your gas mileage will go up.

lol the O/D stands for overdrive...and I can't laugh too hard at you cause I would've never known about the button if it wasn't for my cousin...I wish he hadn't shown it to me...I've gotten one ticket and a court appearance as a result of it...:eek:
