Slow at work at the moment. Good time to read. Came across this and was just
curious on your opinions. Thanks.

Positive:
-Acetone In Fuel Said to Increase Mileage.

-15-35% increase in fuel economy (interesting).

Negative:
-If one spills in one the plastic skirt of their car it will craze or crack it.
(It is the key ingredient in paint remover.)

-Acetone will chew up your elastomers on prolonged contact:
seals, gaskets, rubber hoses, etc


Acetone In Fuel Said to Increase Mileage

Readily-available chemical added to gas tank in small proportion improves the fuel's ability to vaporize completely by reducing the surface tension that inhibits vaporization of some fuel droplets.

Acetone (CH3COCH3) is a product that can be purchased inexpensively in most locations around the world, such as in the common hardware, auto parts, or drug store. Added to the fuel tank in tiny amounts, acetone aids in the vaporization of the gasoline or diesel, increasing fuel efficiency, engine longevity, and performance -- as well as reducing hydrocarbon emissions.

Wouldn't do it....... There's no telling what your engine will experience in the long run. I would much rather stay with the evil that I know. IMO

yse toluene or xelene... toluene is 114 octain... worksgreat
As I mentioned in another thread, BTX, benzene, toluene, and p-xylene, are common additives to boost octane ratings.

Toluene = methyl benzene
p-xylene = 1,4-dimethyl benzene
