The family and I just returned from a whirlwind vacation, to the Traverse City, Michigan, area and the Upper Peninsula, among other places.
I drive an older truck, which I use to pull a travel trailer and carry my wife, kids and dog.
I happened recently upon something called BP Invigorate. It’s a gasoline with additives that’s supposed to help your engine run cleaner, which equates to better gas mileage.
After using a few tanks of the stuff, I am seeing a fuel economy improvement of up to 3 mpg, in mostly highway driving (sans the trailer).
Nothing to sneeze at. And I haven’t found this particular brand of gasoline to be any more expensive than the others.
My brother, an automotive connoisseur, told me before I left for vacation that buying “cheap gas” isn’t worth the penny-per-gallon savings.
He said I should look for brands that use additives, like Shell and BP. So that’s probably why I tried BP, since there seem to be more of them around Michigan.
I haven’t received any payments to “endorse” BP or anything. I’m just offering a little anecdote on my experience so far.
Regardless of what you think, a free Invigorate gas giveaway is worth mentioning.
BP is running a contest to find someone who embodies the Invigorate brand, “running younger for longer.”
To enter, you need to submit a 300-word essay.
Twenty of the top entrants will receive BP gas for a year. The grand prize winner will get $10,000 in BP gas, plus a trip to meet Olympian Dara Torres.
Also nothing to sneeze at.
