Archoil Additives - Anyone here tried them?

I did a search of the forum and didn't find anything on the subject.

I was watching Jay Leno's Garage and found this video:



Apparently, Archoil is an American-Based company and their products work well if Amazon reviews are of good indication. They make friction modifiers, a rust remover and a fuel treatment. A quarter ounce of the treatment treats 20 gallons of gas.

So, you tell me... Have you tried this to increase your MPGs? If so, how does it work?

I was at a friend's house yesterday and he showed me a bottle of this stuff and gave a quick run down of it. I hadn't heard of it at all on EM so I did a search and this is about the only tiny bit of info on it. Its quite the pricey stuff. He is going to try it in his Leaf. If it will show any improvement that would be one of the cars it would show in. If I get more info I'll update this thread.
