Default Red Line Fuel System Cleaner

Anybody try this stuff?
I got a bottle couple weeks (I fill up once a week) ran that tank of gas with the Red LIne stuff, it didnt do crap. The guy that sold it to me was like"everyone that buys this stuff comes back and tells me how great it is, increases gas milage, restores performance". I was pissed that this guy fed me all that bs. Well thatt was 2 weeks ago, I should be filling up Saturday but I still have 5/8 of a tank left, I cant beleive that iv gone 250 kms on 3/8 of a tank of gas! I used to only get 350 kms out of a full tank! If I get over 500 thats pretty sweet! Hows your kilometerage or milage? Is kilometerage a word?

Hmmm, never heard of redline, but I'm between 1/8th and a 1/4 of a tank used and I'm at 230km so, I'm getting about 600km to a tank. When I had the fuel line conditioning done, I used an STP product, seemed to work well.

Uh yeahhh mostly..
  • School - 16 miles away - 10 Hwy miles <-- there and back 5 times a week
    Furthest friends house - 60 miles - 57 hwy miles <-- i go there on a weekly basis
    Avg other friends houses - 15 miles - 5-10 hwy miles

And i live 5 mins from downtown Cincinnati (the middle of everywhere) . There are VERY few trips my car doesnt have plenty of time to warm up on.. I guess i jsut collect friends from all over the place....
EDIT- Oh ive put 10,000 miles on my car in 12 months and 6 of them i only had my temps..

The best my Bonneville ever got in town was 320 kms, at 320 the light came on i know its getting really sad milage, i dont know why, It runs very rich, and i cant afford to have it scanned to find out so im kinda screwed here...ive replaced the MAF sensor, air filter all the stuff and still bad mileage.
