    Can anyone guarantee that this wouldn't jack your engine or fuel components up? Maybe even exhaust?

    Tried it on a couple of vehicles; '06 Honda CRV and '07 Kia Rio. Didn't change the mileage after 20+ fill-ups. Did clean the injectors and the plugs looked new. Considering the extra cost and pain getting the right amount in the tank, (Kia took 3 ozs, Honda took 3 1/2 ozs and it did make a difference), it wasn't worth the trouble.

    I have used this stuff to pass emissions. That's about it. There's already alky in our fuel around here. It's just going to evaporate faster.

    If you are worried about gas mileage you have no business driving a 4X4.
