You know what's funny, below is the clip I've saved in my own personal
archive since you wrote it::

I think I was paying attention old buddy! What I've been doing lately is
running about a quart and a half of Canola to a tankful, starts and runs better
and noticably smoother but unfortunately no appreciable gains in mileage,
maybe just a tiny smidgin. It is comforting knowing that with the additional
lubricity, the engine should last longer as well. Doug Ferguson
