Only if I was on a trip and driving like a person my age should. I use a gas treatment, also, every 3 months and for my driving, I am lucky to get 165 mile on a tank LA city(which includes our version of freeway traffic) and about 330(220 freway and the rest city) on a trip with some city driving.
I have found when figuring gas mileage, avg mph is key. Mine is us usually around 17-19 mph avg on the city tanks and about 45-50 mph avg on tanks with a large degree of real freeway driving.

If I was doing all highway driving I'd get about 350 miles anyway. (21mpg) In the city 250-270.

On business trips I get around 220 miles per tank but when the road is clear I let it fly. ( driving mostly in the 100 - 180 mph range, if possible)
In august I used my V for a vacation trip to Luxemburg and France, there`s a speed limit of 130 kph, thats 80 mph and I got over 300 miles out of a tank by doing mostly between 80 - 90 mph.
