Default ATF used as gas additive???

Has anyone heard of putting ATF in with gasoline to increase gas mileage?
A man that works with my wife says it increases the gas mileage by 20-25%.
Comments Please....

Ask him also to lend you his tinfoil hat. With that, you too can
receive the messages he gets from the planet Gnorf.

Yeah, it will increase your gas mileage:
Your car will eventually stop and never start again - in effect not using
any gas but also not going anywhere. Don't do it!

Totally bogus. Don't put it in your gas tank if you depend on your car to
take you places. If it worked, you'd hear about it from every news source in
existence.

i was being sarcastic so relax there guy. but diesel per quart is still
cheaper than atf per quart. i'm still interested whether the op thinks
they should use honda z1 or whether they can get away with ordinary dexron!
