One wonders why the factory does not put in these "Miricle MPG improving" additivies.

I mean if I could eeek out a couple of extra MPG by dumping in a bottole of Uncle Joe's Snake Oil, as an auto company executive under federal mandate to increase MPG.. Why not?
x2....it seems the only folks that claim gains are the folks who push the stuff and the folks who purchase and say they get improvements so they can justify the added expense to themselves.

I do however use a little additive in the fuel. Marvel Mystery Oil. Helps clean the injectors and generator carberator. This stuff actually works. When we got our motorhome a little over a year ago, it had sat for some time after being repo'd. The generator missed and skipped. I found out Onan carberators were very sensitive to varnish deposit's if they sat to long. The MMO caused it to run really erraticate at first, but after a few hours it smoothed out and runs like a champ to this day.
It's ALL Snake Oil,.... 'cept those we put our faith in...

Yeah, I'm kind of thinking that too now. I was visiting a customer and long time friend yesterday who's a maintenance director for an aviation company. He's been working on aircraft for over 40 years and he said all they use in the planes is just good synthetic oil.
