More Miles Per Gallon

Here's a product that can save you a LOT of money on gasoline. I am getting paid nothing for this report; I just wanted to pass it along. -- D.H.

Dollar SignsAt 150,000 miles my 1993 Cadillac was suffering from poor gas mileage. I was getting under 9 miles per gallon in town and about 14 on the road, as opposed to the new car sticker specs of 15 and 25. At $2.39 per gallon for high-octane I was suffering more than my car was.

I tried everything I could think of. I paid a quick lube shop to clean the engine throttle body, which it needed badly. I even replaced the original spark plugs (at 150,00 miles I figured it was time). All to no avail. Various gas treatments I tried didn't help.

Then, on a recent road trip, I bought some STP Fuel Injector Cleaner at a 7-11 just outside of town. What a difference it made!

By the time I had traveled fifty miles my fuel efficiency indicator was showing over 20 miles per gallon, and on the way home it reached an average of 26.5. After about a month I noticed that the cheap gas I was buying was clogging my fuel injectors again so I tried another bottle of S.T.P. with the same result; around 16.5 m.p.g. in town, which is better than I was getting when I first got the car twelve years ago. At under $3 a bottle every four or five tankfuls it's the best thing I have found to help my strained budget.

This story is true. I recommend this stuff to all my friends. Just be sure to get the black bottle that says "Contains Jet Fuel". STP Fuel Injector Cleaner. It WORKS!
