I've been using Slime for over 20 years. It's worked extremely well for me. It does increase tire wear because you can ride more (lol).
It does not measurably increase rolling resistance. It may even increase coasting distance slightly.

Sounds like you're still doing it wrong.

Just say no to Slime.
