I haven't seen that the additional mpg pays for the additives.

I don't think additive improve gas mileage to any extent that you can see. In the laboratory, maybe a tiny bit. If the additive boosts the octane, then maybe 0.03 mpg more. If the injectors are clogged, unclogging them helps a little as far as mpg but helps more in terms of smooth running.

Gvan says, ..." studied dozens of these products and concluded that none of them work."

"Never" is a pretty strong word. I suppose a lot, maybe most, of them don't work. But there are certain products which accomplish certain things for certain needs, such as octane boosters.

A poster ("Houkster") discussed a product caled "Ethanol Defense" by Bell Products. I checked some articles, and just acquired a bottle. I'll post my results after a few tankfuls.
