What if you could actually improve your gas mileage
significantly (5-20%)? Not have to alter your driving habits?
Not have to install any extra questionable parts on your car?
What if it were as easy to do as 1-2-3?
Well, it is.
For years Big Oil has offered three or so different grades of
gas octane 87 regular, 89-90 premium and 91-94 super.These
grades are actually based upon a 100 octane scale where the
cleanest burning, most ideal fuel was propane (clean burn fuel).
But the scale never took into account arromatic petrol compounds
and derivatives which can actually surpass the 100 octane mark,
some as high as 115-130 octane.
So the object here is to get the engine running the cleanest
burning fuel possible, leave less soot and deposits in the
combustion chamber and on the valves, clean the injection
system, or in older cars the carburetor, not hurt emmisions
systems, not void our warranty, and, in the end, get increased
gas mileage and increased engine life. Wow, thats a lot. It
really isn't, though.
In recent tests it has been proven that arromatic petroleum
distillates, alcohol (methyl alcohol), ether, acetone, and
toluene can and will do all of these. That is to a point. If you
make the fuel mixture too rich you can actually do the opposite.
The ideal mixture found that was easiest to obtain and handle
was 1-2 ounces of acetone per full tank (acetone can be found at
your local hardware store or paint supply shop). This was tested
on everything from 4-8 cylinder gas engines to big Cummings
diesel engines. The range in increase of fuel efficincy was
5-20% and the average being 9%. It was found if you used 3 or
more ounces per tank ful results were the same or worse than
without the acetone - the mixture was too rich.
The effects of the acetone were then tested on the fuel line
components themselves for resilience and it was found that
unlike methyl alcohol (racing fuel) it did not have a caustic
effect. Acetone will have a etching effect on paint, plastic
headlight lenses, etc... Spills should be wiped up immediately.
So, to make the story short and get straight to the point, if
you wanted to add an average of 9% fuel efficiency to your
vehicle and do it for less than $.50 per fillup - its as easy as
adding 1-2 ounces acetone per tankfull. Thats it - the only
problems are Big Oil doesn't want you to know how to save on gas
and you may still void you warranty as they now test for gas
additives like acetone.
Also, one last note, acetone or any additive that makes your
engine more efficient and burn cleaner is better for the
environment - less emmissions.
