This has got to be a very out-of-date MSDS. MTBE has been phased out of our fuels over the last 8-10 years because of contaminated ground water concerns. It has been replaced with ethanol that has posed its own set of problems.

As for adding stuff to the fuel, I have a fuel helper recipe that includes acetone, xylene, PRI-G and some fuel lubricants. I think it helps my gas mileage but I really don't know by how much. They are more like an insurance policy against bad fuel though if one sticks with Top Tier fuels, one shouldn't have any gas-related problems.

I find it curious that Chevron doesn't list Techron(polyetheramine)as an ingredient in their fuels on their MSDS. It does list however, Naphthalene and MTBE.
