Doesn't really do much, i've tested extensively over the past year with acetone in, and not in the tank.

How you drive, and your cars tune-up will have the biggest effects.

I ran it for a while, too. My mileage might have gone up a little bit, but it certainly did not double.

Interesting, I'll wait to see what some of the others have to say before I try it, particularly those with 87-91s. Time to do a little online research.

My plan to double gas mileage includes purchasing just one brick.
