Did a little research. A few years back (1999) a new product was non flamable emergency gas (fuel addititive). Billed as save to store for up to 5 years and sold in about a half gallon container. It was supposed to let the car run for several miles to the gas station.
There was concern that it was harmfull to the fuel system of your car and should only be used once. I looked up a few manufacturers (prestone and pennzoil) that originally sold the stuff. Neither list the product anymore on their websites. It is also not listed by most autoparts houses.
I am assuming that it is not still marketed for a reason. That being that is wasn't good for continued use. I am also assuming that the antifreeze is the same type of deal. Go with the fuel injector cleaner.
Thanxs for the update and the interesting topic. Let us know if your son does have any trouble with his Saturn. : I learn something new everyday on this site. :)
