Averaging 41 mpg, not bad...
280 miles, 6.7 gallons...

Used Kroger 93 octane,
with half a small bottle Techron (every fifth tank)
2 ounces Sta-bil 360, (every other tank)
1/2 ounce Sta-bil Marine blue (every other tank)
And a can of water remover....

Although most folks here will sniff at 41 mpg, it is well above my long term average. Maybe if I could better control my plutonium right foot ... and maybe try a few of your supplements too, I might break the 40 barrier more frequently.

I always have used top tier fuel with the included additives they brag about. So, I'm not too sure how much I'd benefit. Cooler weather makes a huge impact on my short term average ... helps with the home power bill too, to the tune of about $100/month. Bring it ON!

My average on the 453 through Summer driving was 40.x but it is climbing again since I don't need the AC much. Before Summer I was averaging 43.x.

Great numbers from your tried and true "41 mpg" Kroger recipe!
