    Hi all,

    is anyone using acetone as a fuel additive - general concentration around 2 oz per 10 gallons of gasoline?


    Cheers,

    thjakits :cool:

    REALLY old thread, but yes I tried it, and for 10k miles, zero improvement or detriment in fuel economy. Don't waste the effort or $. It did nothing.

    works great for turning your fuel lines into black tar like goo, and then putting it thru the injectors.

    There was a long thread on a 4wd forum (all in spanish though) about acetone in those percentages, almost everyone got an improvment of about 8 to 10% on fuel economy. One of them even tried it secretly into his wife's car to see if fuel was an improvement and if she would feel a difference. (and it actually did)

    On the ones that were getting 7k's per liter it did nothing or almost nothing, (old 2F engines) it was more noticeable on the ones that normally were getting over 10 k's per liter of fuel.

    cheers.
