So far, all I have done is the B12 (I want to run one "clean" tank through before I try the acetone). The cool part is, I have already seen results. I have put 250 miles on the "clean" tank, and I haven't even used a half a tank of gas! I'm still about an eighth of an inch above the half tank mark on the gauge.

My system must have been some kinda nasty!! I was only getting about 180 miles to a half a tank before....

I tried it again and saw no difference in the MPG but it could be my pouring device that is not getting it all in to the tank but in the matal part and evaporating

Has any one else tryed it if so whats your results

i thought about this for a little bit, and here is whats fishy:

gasoline has very low surface tenion because it is nonpolar. It actually evaporates very easily. This is why if you throw a match at a puddle of gas it will ignite, whereas a puddle of oil will not. The article says that gas has a low surface tension, which is not true.

another thing: If it really did help your gas mileage, wouldnt EVERY gas station be putting it in and claiming that their gas will help your MPG by 10%? There is probably a good reason why gas companies tell you not to put it in the tank.
