Re: Better Mileage, Acetone added to regular gas
Here's the wiki of acetone use as an automotive fuel additive
"Some automotive enthusiasts add acetone at around 1 part in 500 to their fuel, following claims of dramatic improvement in fuel economy and engine life. This practice is controversial as there are counterclaims that acetone has no measurable effect or may in fact reduce engine life by adversely affecting fuel system parts. Debates on this subject and claims of Big Oil cover-up intensified when the practice was addressed on the popular American TV show MythBusters in 2006, and shown to have negative effect in the televised fuel economy test."
Really all that says is there has been no proof one way or the other, and even some tests prove the opposite... I'm hesitant to try...
BTW... The OP may or may not have started this post to troll for flamers... Those who get worked up over this sort of thing should take note that he has 3 posts... I noticed some people sort of freaked out in the fuel catalyst post.
