Recently my husband saw a segment on CSPAN touting a gas additive. CA-40, which is described thusly:
I am now getting 270 miles per tank (in my '98 Cutlass) instead of about 200.

It's also one of the major components of CA-40. The problem has been that no one has ever been able to keep calcium suspended in fuel. Until now.
CA-40 keeps calcium in suspension through our patented blending process. When CA-40 is added to gasoline or diesel, the calcium bonds to hydrocarbons within the fuel, causing it to burn more efficiently. What this means to consumers is increased fuel efficiency, increased lubricity, and a decrease in harmful emissions.
Here's an interview with manufacturer:
