Like 90% of additives, just more Snake Oil. Does more to make you feel better than the engine...

Scored pretty low on the Fuel test for lubricity -> Lubricity Additive Study Results - Diesel Place : Chevrolet and GMC Diesel Truck Forums

I actually noticed a very significant DROP in MPG when I used the Lucas as directed. The only two additives that I have used that made a tangible difference, substantiated by increased MPG or noticeably smoother idle/quieter drive, was the Hot Shot's Secret fuel and oil additives (put in about 10,000 miles apart from each other so I can say each one helps some), and the DuraLube Summer Blend+. I had meant to buy the XPD from DuraLube, but am happy with what I received anyways.

In my over the road semi days we had an old Freightliner at one Mom & Pop company with a cat that was good for about 4.2 to 4.5 MPG. When I dumped Lucas fuel stabilizer in it came up 1MPG every time I ran it. I hand calculated every fuel stop and in that truck in particular it was saving us about $80 a fill up after factoring in the cost of the Lucas back around 2001 when diesel was around $1.40 a gallon. It wasn't from different terrain nor lighter loads , the truck just gained when on it. I ran in it in several other trucks with no noticeable difference in MPG either though as well.
