Acetone in Gas Helps Mileage?
 
Hi all,

Has any one tried acetone in the gas?

That website has to contain some of the most hillarious and absurd information I've read in a long time. Seriously. While I've read more convincing explanations of why it may (or may not) improve fuel economy, that website's claim that it's because the car companies want your engine to explode in order to sell you a new one is right up there with saying the government is hiding UFO's and Canadians claiming that the inventor of the 100mpg carburetor was assassinated by the CIA.

I must agree with AZCivic, everything about that website smells like "government/industry conspiracy". Usually websites made up out of long "text only" pages are set up by people who don't have anything to say, and hide that in the longness of their texts.
I once discussed with the owner of such a site who was building a "free energy" device : he had litterally pages full of text describing how he slowly but surely was getting "over unity". It turned out he didn't know the difference between a volt and an amp.

They're giving away the recipy, gas sells at 3 dollars/gallon : there must be at least 100 million people willing to give it a try, we should have the results in a week or two

;)

Re: Acetone in Gas Helps Mileage?-Fair amount of BS
 
His Q/A is interesting,and some of it is even correct,but he repeats some absolute BS that makes me think his "acetone" idea is probably more BS.
1)Ethanol takes more energy to produce than it produces.Wow,those Brazilians must be real morons not to have tumbled to this after 15 years of running(currently) 1/3 of their passenger vehicles on ethanol from sugar cane.
2)"Car companies could improve mpg easily,but this would cause much less engine wear ,so the vehicles wouldn't wear out quickly enough."Unadulterated BS.Does anyone really think a mpg fanatic company like Honda would leave mpg on the table for this reason(which has resisted producing V-8's despite the obvious marketing disadvantage the lack of a V-8 has caused).The vast majority of cars aren't sold because the old car is worn out;they are slod because the consumer "wants a new car" simple as that.
3)40wt oil is best for mpg???Right!!
Oh well.I have heard the acetone mpg "idea" before.Heck,I might just give it a try-I don't think 1/400 would hurt anything,but in very hot south Louisiana,I doubt that the motor is having trouble vaporizing the fuel.Thanks.Charlie

I'm in the process of trying it, I've heard lots of good stuff about it around random places, but my little honda's injection system is built oddly so I wouldn't qualify my results with the others. On 1 oz per 10 gallons I saw no change except my engine ran much more smoothly, and I'm still waiting on 3oz per 10 gallong results.

Maybe the acetone thins out that heavy oil and really does improve mileage:eek:;).

How about vodka instead of acetone?
