    Default fuel saving products

    do any market fuel savers even work to add MPG?

    Not usually enough to offset the cost of the product itself.

    I had good luck with Acetone in my old truck (2-4 mpg extra regularly in a 4cyl. Nissan Frontier). But have only seen about 1 mpg difference consistently in my Sierra. It's still worth it as it saves me about 2-3 dollars per tank of gas and only costs about $5 per quart and only takes about 4-6 oz. per tank of gas.

    I use the Lucas fuel treatment on straight highway driving I get 50 miles more per tank with it cant say how much it changes city mileage but i made a trip every week 2 times i would add it to my Chevy Colorado and could nurse 400 miles from a tank of gas when I did not use it the times I added it I always got past 450 miles to empty. I add it to My other trucks as well but cant say how much of an improvement it has made but I know it does
