Acetone to Increase Mileage

This article claims up to a 50% or so improvement in miles-per-gallon by adding 1 ounce of acetone to 10 gallons of gasoline. That seems kind of nutty. Can anyone bunk or debunk the claim?

Acetone In Fuel Said to Increase Mileage: "Complete vaporization of fuel is far from perfect in today's cars and trucks. A certain amount of residual fuel in most engines remains liquid in the hot chamber. In order to be fully combusted, the fuel must be fully vaporized.

Surface tension presents an obstacle to vaporization. For instance the energy barrier from surface tension can sometimes force water to reach 300 degrees Fahrenheit before it vaporizes. Similarly with gasoline.

Acetone drastically reduces the surface tension.... This results in a more complete vaporization with other factors remaining the same. More complete vaporization means less wasted fuel, hence the increased gas mileage from the increased thermal efficiency."

Here is another article by the same author that goes into more detail.

If this actually worked, someone would be selling little 2-ounce bottles of acetone with a brandname like "SpeedFire mileage booster!" for $5 each.
 
nice, comfy place you got here :)..
 
What about Water injection?
 
One way to find out...
 
Actually to all:

FYI: The acetone is reacting with the catalyst used in the oxygen senor making the mixture "appear" too rich. As a result - the mixture is leaned out and the mileage goes up.

The reason it does not work the same on all cars is that there are three different metals used as catalysts in O2 sensors: platinum palladium rhodium or in combination. Acetone in combination with NOx in the exhaust will react differently with each metal to either speed up or slow down the catalytic reaction of the oxygen senor. FYI, I am not talking about the catalytic converter - just to stop about 100 posts.

Question: am I the only one on the planet who knows this?

The reason I know this is that I used to work for Exxon; and fyi, the reason they don't put acetone in gas is that it is hard to get it to stay there and second over time it reacts with different kinds of additives in fuel. Which is also a reason why it does not work on some car - it's the gas not the car.
 
The gentleman started using acetone fifty years ago,long before all the o2 sensors,so there are other reasond he has been getting positive results for so long.
 
Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel Saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. Search engine optimization, Try to Be happy
