    Using Acetone in fuel..............

    Just thought I would post about my experience with using acetone in my diesel. Its now coming upto 234K miles on the odo and have been using it since 126K miles. Its a 2000yr (X) 1.7dti with the only mods being the air box cones removed.
    Some repairs have been carried out but absolutley no fueling issues have arisen at all. So over 100K miles and its proved to me that it doesnt damage the engine in the slightest.
    Anyone else using it? What have you found out? Any problems?........G

    A lot smoother running, less smoke, better mpg, better starting.
    Only downside is having to buy the acetone in the first place (5lts for £10.00 but it goes a long way), measuring the correct amount and adding it to the tank when you fill up.
    If I stop using it you can sharp tell!

    I have heard of it being put in petrol but I think diesel brings it out best.
    Dont know if it gives you extra bhp but I think it would certainly help. Hasnt done mine any harm.
    I run it at a mix of 1 egg cupfull (about 2 ounces) to a tankfull.

    Complete explanation here
    http://www.pureenergysystems.com/new...00069_Acetone/

    But when you've read the blurb
    Just ask yourself this:

    If it worked as claimed on this site (35% mileage gain at its best for 3oz of acetone in 10 gallons of fuel) then why don't one of the fuel companies add it and make a fortune as everyone went to buy their fuel against everyone elses?
    Remember, fuel companies such as BP, SHELL etc spend billions a year researching just this sort of thing.
    And no conspiricy theories that they dont want us to save fuel, or they are all in hand with each other and your mother is an alien she god too perleeezzzeee!

    Having got this far, you probably think hmmm.... maybe there is something in it though. SO go here and read this

    This is by two real experts. Both

    S'obvious really isn't it?
    PS - Its also sold as Nail Polish Remover. And we all know what that will do to your paintwork !
