Heated fuel lines revisited

I did a search and notice that heated fuel lines has been discussed on this site but couldn't tell if anyone try it. When I looked in the top 10 only one mentioned having heated fuel lines. I saw over a 3% increase in FE when I installed them. Is anyone using them or is my gain unusuall?
