I use Power Service Diesel Kleen after routine maintenance that includes air filter, fuel filter, and oil change. Diesel Kleen raises cetane up to 6 numbers and notes up to an 8% gain in mpg.

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.
