Yesterday I got 23.9 and today I averaged 24.1. I can't conclusively say they've improved mileage at this point, but they definitely aren't harming anything.
If your original cooling system was anything like a late 1980's passenger car,a 'ideal',racing type cooling system could get you 24.38 mpg tops.
