5MPG is an exaggeration. While its true that radiator blocking helps maintain engine temps, on the Rav it will be more like 1-2MPG than 5. And it doesn't change the severe hit you see from short trips. A Prius might see that amount of increase on longer trips.
Also good to note that active shutters are mechanical, and a failure of that mechanism results in an un-drivable car.
