True, but you condense a disproportionate amount of water from moist air with an empty tank as opposed to a full tank.

Claim, and do, are 2 different things. The additives I've used here have never done anything but ruin fuel economy while leaving water in my tank, and for the most part, are redundant when using good quality gasoline.
