RE: [DMCForum] Acetone In Gas tank

This came up on my other list recently.  Here are some responses:

"Since we were just speaking about acetone added to gasoline and the effects it might have, they tried it (along with a few other "fuel saving" products) on Mythbusters last night and it ended up reducing their mileage (although not by a whole lot).  They're usually pretty good about following directions as well, so I'd assume they used the recommended amount (which I think was a couple mL per liter). Just thought I'd pass that along to for anyone interested in the outcome of the acetone in fuel experiment."

"Myth Busters, coincidentally, did an examination of acetone's effect, & altho I didn't see the episode, they reportedly tested a new/modern F.I. car, and an old, carbureted  70+-ish Old mobile, performing on a dynomometer.

Their test results were supposedly inconclusive, or slightly deleterious
(bad) with acetone usage. Interestingly, altho Mythbusters does repeat its episodes, I haven't been able to watch the show.

So, acetone did not, apparently, produce dramatically different  (+/-)
results during my around-town-mostly driving experience, with it.
