    I'm not buying it. I don't think fuel vaporization is hindering fuel economy. If it was, then there would be a particulate problem with gasoline engines, and there is not.

    Anyone want to buy swampland in Florida?

    I have been a mechanic for over thirty years and Acetone (A SOLVENT!?!?!?!?!?!) in my opinion will cause a "wash" of the cylinder walls during flame propagation. This will in most likely cases wash the oil off the walls causing piston ring failure!
    The website looks very professional and their explaination is the best of any "yellow journalism" that I can see.
    There have always been gas milage gurus, but you can not change the law of physics.
    All internal combustion engines will only operate at approximately 40% efficiency and the rest is lost in heat, exhaust and some in the newer engines are recycled in egr systems, but essentially you can't do too much to a modern engine to increase milage by using a "mechanic in a can"

    I won't be adding acetone to my engines that' s for sure.

    If that is a penny for my thoughts, and you put your two cents in...who's making a penny?

    Oh its the guy who came up with this hairbrain idea to ruin you blocks and heads!

    I don't think the average gas engine is even close to 40% efficient.
    Hey even if it ain't broke it's still fun to tinker with it.
