Please keep track of what you do, and post results.
acetone is fairly inexpensive, and, if it were such a great additive, i would figure it would already be something that would be added to the fuel.

i have serious doubts as to the effectiveness of this thing longterm, as well as the accuracy of the testimonials of people that have used this product as a way to increasae fuel economy and reduce emissions.

now, if exxon, bp, shell, et al, were to publish studies thatverified these claims, then i would believe it. however, at this point it sounds no better than a chemical turbonator.

and a proper running engine should have no issues with hc, or any other of the emissions...
