To test whether acetone improves fuel efficiency in passenger cars, 10 people were randomly selected. Each person brings his/her car to a gas station and fills it with gas. The car’s mileage is recorded. When the car is nearly empty, the person takes the car back to the gas station and refills it. Mileage and miles per gallon are recorded. Acetone is added to the tank. When the tank is nearly empty, the person returns to the gas station and fills the tank again. Miles per gallon are recorded. Below is a table with the data. [sd = 1.011]
