It was another forum bobistheoilguy.com
and one part that pops right up that I never thought of that was mentioned here was an increase of up to 35% MPG ????
thats ridiclously high claim
the thing that worries me is this...
Back in my misspent youth, I used to use acetone as a co-solvent to keep ethanol and petrol mixed.
Also used Acetone and MEK on their own, at a rate of about 200ml/45 litres (0.4%, just above his treat rate.
Never saw anything...did severely soften a clear plastic fuel filter, which made me very happy that I knew I had a brass strainer in the tank.
and this ..
The normal boiling point of acetone at standard atmospheric pressure is 56.5° C
Based on that.. I think it might pre-ignite and cause major KR before it gets to be ignited properly by timing in the combustion chamber.. especially in a */C car.
EDIT: But after much thought.. if you either premix it before puttin it into your tank or pour it in and THEN fill up.. having the gasoline wash it down.. would it be ok? Since it'* also diluted.. it might be alright.. Just wondering if I want to brave it and chance it or wait till someone else tries it. The other tricky part is right now all gas station is running winter gas so obviously the MPG is crap.. so I"m debating if I try this if I will wait till they bring summer gas back or chance that gas stations don't switch to summer gas in the midst of the test giving me false readin that the MPG DID go up but it'* due to summer gas
