Well, long story short, it really made a difference in the fuel economy at idle. The injectors were pulsing about 1/8th the normal rate while maintaining the same idle speed. We kept upping the output by dumping more lye in the mix until eventually it melted the o-ring on the output hose and exploded everywhere! I think it would really help MPG if you could make a reliable unit with consistent mixtures.
That's amusing. I can improve my fuel economy even better at idle - turn off the ignition key.

I'm not coasting, I'm shifting slowly.
