Do Fuel Additives Work?

With gas prices on the rise, getting the most miles out of a gallon of gasoline is high on the priority list of drivers. With each mile we drive and use gasoline in our combustion engines, however, dirt and grime can build up and that can bring down your miles per gallon. The auto service centers at Pine Belt Chevrolet, Pine Belt Subaru and Pine Belt Chrysler-Jeep are top notch in Lakewood, NJ and we want to help answer the question, “do fuel additives improve your miles per gallon?”

Fuel Additives

Some gasolines have fuel additives already in them with the aim of improving the gasoline’s efficiency. These additives are shown in the octane rating on the pump. These higher octane gasolines run hotter or work to lubricate the engine. Both result in your engine running better.

What About the Ones You Buy?

Additives you purchase at the gas station or auto parts stores say they will scrub your engine and eliminate the dirt and grime, thus boosting your fuel efficiency back to the level when your vehicle was new. Extensive testing of fuel additives have shown that they do not increase your miles per gallon but they may have other benefits. A fuel injector on a vehicle is an expensive part to replace. Fuel additives will clean out the fuel injector and extend its life. A very important benefit.
