I can't speak to that specifically, but I once ran out of gas in the
Spitfire. It was going to be an hour or more before AAA would be
dropping by, so I rummaged in the trunk and came up with a
half-bottle of fuel treatment. Having nothing to lose, I poured it
in the tank. When I hit the starter, the engine caught and I hauled
ass for the gas station about 2 miles away. Made it with gas to spare.
I don't know if it was running on fuel treatment, or if it was enough
to float the residual gas below the outlet enough to let a bit more
flow. Either way, it saved me a long wait on the side of the road!
