You probably are getting mileage. I started using it w/ Marvel and I think I might be noticing a mileage increase.

what about running it in the winter, how does it protect from gelling? is it good for that, or will I need to run an additive for that as well?

I started running it a week ago on my 3rd tank and seems to have picked up some mileage I got over 16 on a trip that was over 200 miles towing a 7k horse trailer and on the 2nd thank I got 17.6 and that was hwy city and mountain driving with a few smoke shows mixed in too.... now if I can only learn to drive nicer I could prolly see 19. But what good is power if you don't use it:shrug:

Yah, depending on how cold it gets. I'm yet to have a problem starting. And I've put my fuel to the test in temps below -10 several times. You live in Utah though, so I imagine it gets alot colder than that though.

1 oz per gallon. I use the walmart water bottles cuz they are 20 oz and I normally fill 20-22 gal per fill up. last trip I got 19.47 mpg so I have picked up some mileage.
