    Both of your comments now have been very vague.

    What fuel does the pickup run on?

    Gas or diesel?

    How much "bar lube" do you mix with the fuel?

    What is "bar-lube"?

    What does the manufacturer (warranty) think of adding this chemical to the fuel?

    The first step to an mpg increase is doing and keeping up on the regular maintenance. All that stuff like oil and filter, air filter, fuel filter, pcv valve, spark plugs / wires / cap and rotor, 02 sensor, trans fluid and filter, wheel bearings, breather cap, brakes, tires, air pressure, coolant, fuses relays and light bulbs, windshield wipers too, to name some to most of what DIY'ers can do.

    Now a windshield wiper blade may not increase your mpg but it's all part of the required mind set, because so long the truck isn't properly maintained everything else is just wishful thinking, goofing around, or something along the lines of re-inventing the wheel.

    Thank you.
