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

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.

Sold 01 350 6" on 37's and mild mods, 00 X 4" on 35's, 02 f350 4" 35's modded from fan to drive shaft, ridin the 03 with nose conversion with 125k and counting upwards slowly.
Never had CNC's poo on any of it, never will.
