Improving Gas Mileage

Recommended Posts

I've been reading about adding acetone to your gas helps vaporize the gas more efficiently. Supposed 2-3 oz's per 10 gallons does wonders. Supposedly there aren't any side effects, and it also reduces hydrocarbons. I wonder if anyone has done this before. I'll try this in my Nissan truck before giving the 911 a dose.. Here is a great article..

That article seems like a lot of BS to me (I'm a biochemist, been working in the biotech industry for >20 years). This statement is a joke:

"Most fuel molecules are sluggish with respect to their natural frequency. Acetone has an inherent molecular vibration that "stirs up" the fuel molecules, to break the surface tension."

Yeah, right!

Agree with the other poster, acetone is a pretty agressive solvent, wouldn't want to test it on the seals in my P-car.

Also, use the reality check method. If adding acetone was such a great thing to improve mileage and reduce pollution, don't you think Shell and/or Chevron, etc would have figured this out some time ago?

My experience with tolulene was with my prior car - 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo. Adding the right amount of tolulene increseased the octane (never went above around 100). Could then use the boost controller to increase boost from the normal (with upgraded ECU) 14.5 pounds to just under 20. Tolulene is easy to find at many paint stores like Sherwin Williams.

Pjorgan - I agree, just like those devices that guarantee fuel savings by clamping on the fuel line and magnetically aligning the molecules! What a joke!

The only way to save fuel is to keep your car in top tune, and keep your foot out of it!

If anyone does use it, hope you don't spill it on your fender, bye bye paint!
