i don't think that stuff is good for your car, but im not positive. I have a manual, and I get an average of 38mpg combined city and highway. I always make sure my tires are inflated properly. It only takes a few minutes to stop at a gas station, and fill ur tires up. That also helps with safety. Also, I got a K&N filter for my emgine filter. It never needs to be replaced, just cleaned and oiled like every 40k. The filter is supposed to give better gas mileage and allow the engine to breath a little better.
