MPGustavson - I'm glad to read you have the sense to concede the MPG "results" aren't scientific.

Hopefully that covered cost includes engine damage. What if it improves mileage by thinning/diluting your oil?

maybe you shouls conduct a study with your friends.... give some of them the product, and some of them regular oil in the product's bottle... that way the subconcious driving change wouldn't effect mileage.
