Some of those techniques work, I haven't read enough about it to know of all the techniques to know how they all work. But, there is another way to boost MPG. Originally, I thought this was a failed idea, or scam. The idea is splitting water for hydrogen and oxygen, and then using it to supplement gasoline. I was very skeptical at first. I did the energy calculations and you always end up putting more in than you take out. But, I was wrong in my assumptions. I was assuming that hydrogen would be used as the fuel. Instead, most of these systems just use the hydrogen (and a very small amount) to help the gasoline vaporize and burn more efficiently. I finally bought the book that you can find here http://himpg.water4gas.hop.clickbank.net , and installed the basic kit on my 1994 GMC Sonoma. It jumped from 20 MPG to 29 MPG. I guess it made a difference.

I have a Ford Ranger with a V6 that I was averaging 17mpg in. After using the techniques listed on cleanmpg, I am now up to ~21 and expect to hit 25 soon. I'm guessing I'll be getting 30mpg within a month!
