pretty sure most of you have lost your mind.. first of all acetone unaugmented
is 150 octane.
so it sure as hell dosent drop your octane..dont be asenine
secondly acetones' major quality is that it drops the surface tension on the
liquid gasoline.. it improves vaporization.
for the numb nuts in the crowd this is simple.. liquid gas dosent burn. the
vapor burns. acetone helps it vaporize. it is that simple.. dont believe the
disinformation bs. just test it. you will see. and if you dont have the balls or
brains to try it, shut up
Not trying to pick a bone, but it's nail polish remover. Your
mother/sister/wife/daughter probably pollutes more with it doing her
nails than if it were put in your tank. Acetone occurs naturally in
the environment, is not bioaccumulative and is water soluble.
Breating the vapors is another story. Not recommended. But then
again, not wise to breath gasoline either.
And what exactly is the ratio you are using, in what kind of vehicle. Most
links that I've seen do not show the dramatic increases in mileage that the
original poster was touting. Do you have any documented proof of your before
and after mileage? Check this link:
Doesn't seem like such a good deal to me.
1. Whodda hell needs to post as 'anonymous?
2. the poster you rant about couldnt be bothered to read the details.. big
deal, not the first time. We've ALL done that on e time or another.
3. CAREFUL reading of the links involved describe the blend percentage to
be used as well as cautionary handling statements.
- thus the MSDS is moot
4 Though the proponent is evangelical about it, the leavening part is where
he leaves it up to the reader... try it for yourself or dont.!
- Thus I consider it fair and balanced.
I think I might try it.. when I get around to it. There are PLENTY of
simple ideas that havent gotten fair play... when someone DOES follow
through, you slap your head and exclaim "Why didnt...!"
and when you read up on Ethanol, especially if you watch your MPG figures,
you see that there are plenty of stupid ideas that get a pass in the public
Did ANY of you guys READ the damn thing!?????
wonder the press leads the typical american around by the
nose... they drop the facts that refute the lead of any story agenda down
to the bottom because they know most wont bother!
Did I miss something? Are you talking about the guy said he soked parts in
gas/acetone mixture and it didnt hurt anything? If you read it on the
internet it must be true? Did it say anything about O2 sensors and cats? I
didn't see that. May be I'll try it too backyard, but if it ruins my new
cat and O2 I'm gonna be pissed. :0 That one dude said that if you use
Torkomatic oil (or some crap like that) and run acetone your mileage will
DOUBLE....Give me a break, I find that VERY hard to believe!
Yeah.. that's what he said.
But he said HOW and in what mixture ratios. And he clearly invited
everyone to test it on their own.
It's NOT like he was saying to use it full strength or even 1:10
And no.. I DONT believe everything I read on the net... even Mr Oil, or
whatever his name is.
I would not do ANYTRHING based on that website as he has all kinds of
errors in fact sprinkled throughout. For instance, Acetone is NOT the
primary ingredient in most paint removers (although it is used in
Acetone is the strongest and fastest evaporating solvent around.
Excellent for dissolving two-part epoxies before set up, for cleaning
fiberglass repair tools and for thinning fiberglass resin. Acetone
will easily remove sticky residue on glass and porcelain left by
stickers and labels, and will clean lacquer tools well. As acetone is
highly volatile, is will not work as a thinner for most oil paints and
coatings. Mixing with water dilutes strength and slows evaporation
rate. Acetone is used in autobody shops and boatyards, for autobody
repair, fiberglass hull repair and other epoxy or fiberglass projects.
Too strong for a coating solvent. Will attack plastics, synthetic
fabrics etc. Is non-photochemically reactive. Acetone is a colorless
liquid with a mildly pungent odor. 5 gallon drums cannot be shipped

Polyamid (Nylon) is resistant to Acetone, and is commonly used in fuel
systems.Butyl rubber is also resistant.So is PTFE (Teflon) or Ryton.So
is PolyPropelene. EPDM is safe, So is Delrin. NATURAL rubber is not
resistant - nor is Styrene.Or ABS (which is a styrene). Or PVC. Or
CPVC. Or Buna N. Or Kynar. Or Silicone. Or Tygon.Or Viton.Or
Polycarbonate.Or Noryl. Neoprene is not seriously affected but is not
considered Acetone safe.
Buna N, Tygon, Viton and Neoprene are commonly used in fuel system
components, along with Butyl, PTFE,and Delrin. Only 3 of them are
