Acetone in gas for better MPG?!

Can some of you engineer types comment on this? I'm curious.

Re: Acetone in gas for better MPG?!

This is old as the 200mpg carburators. I'm sure it would already be an additive if it was economical. Damn government conspiracies I tell you!

Its not like gasoline has a hard time vaporizing completely. If you really want gas to burn quicker, buy the one with the lower octane rating.

Hrmph. First I'd heard of it.

I already burn 87 octane in my Hemi. Runs fine, cheapest at the pump too.

It's not banned, it just can't be patented.
