Get off the freeway! Find a secondary route that lets you slow the heck down. Relax, enjoy the drive and the extra $ in your pocket.

Oh - and add your car to the garage and start tracking fuel consumption closely. If you don't measure it, you can't manage it.

I have slowed down to running between 60-65 mph on the interstate and so far, I can tell a little bit of a change in the mileage. I'm just under half a tank and so far I have gone over 150 miles on this tank.

I do have a question though. When I fill up, I usually go to Kroger and recently I have been putting the Kroger Additech in with my fuel. I haven't really noticed a change since I started putting it in. Am I just spending needless money?

You're a student. The search function will answer your questions and then some.

I do get Franks point, but he is also new to the site, you never know if they have ever been on a forum before or not, or are even aware of the search feature. Either way the OP knows there is a seach feature .

To answer the question, most fuel aditives do so little it isn't measureable. Only thing I can think of that does not apply are fuel injector cleaners. Fuel Stabilizers might work as well but that isn't for MPG.

Yes it is better to ask the questions than not... but the advice is still good.

Once a month, I put in some Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner. I always notice a little bit of a difference when I do that.
