Gained 1mpg back with it. I cant seem to increase the mileage even when "drafting". $3.99 in michigan is killing me right now. 60xxxmiles ago i was pulling down 42mpg.
all I can think of is your motor is not working as efficiently due to less pressure from being worn out a bit. Maybe try an engine treatment with your oil. I know this helped my last vehicle with 168k on it
