It's not a fact and it has not been proven to work. As a matter of fact, in the laboratory, it had no measurable effect.

It does absolutely nothing to increase your gas mileage. We spoke to a fuel-systems engineer who works for one of the major oil companies. He said that because of all these rumors floating around on the Web, his company tested acetone in its own labs and found no increase in mileage.

Do a google search for "Kettering" and "acetone."

acetone is eating an cloggin the fuel striner at the end of your fuel pump.. if you dont believe me go look for yourself the strainer should look like someone dumped it in mudd..

and yes people do this on evos but they have an auxillary pump just for it.. they never mix it or place pure acetone in there tank.
further more you can use acetone but you have to spray it like nitrous and have an special pump for it.SNOW perfomance sells one.
