Question Straight Pipe question

I cut my muffler off a month or so ago and have been running around with just a turndown tip on it. I don't know if it is just me or if it is giving me worse gas mileage because it has less back pressure. i would like to keep it straight but i'm not sure if it just all in my head or not. any advice?

Why not add a performance muffler and then Y pipe to the back, it just might add some mpg's.

well i dont really want dual exhaust. if anything i would just kick it out the passenger side before the rear tire. and i have a glasspack, i just dont wanna really use a muffler. i was just curious if the straight pipe was causing bad mileage? im not sure if its in my head or not.
