Did nothing for me, either. But then again, I do better than 30mpg on both cars already.

They're saying 2 ounces per 10 gallons. I figure WTH, at least it won't cost much.

I was doing about 4 oz for 12-14 gallons, and that seemed to work well. I did record milage for awhile trying this setup, seemed to help some.
