I have been using ACETONE for 3 years now, 2.5 oz. to 10 gallons works for me. I have more power, I know this because of the large hill I go up every day. Without acetone the car will only go up in 4th gear, with it I can go up in 5th. I also have gone from 32mpg to 37.7 mpg. I keep the driving the same, no a/c no headlights, windows closed. No faster than 60 mph. IT WORKS FOR ME.

regarding this post...
"One fuel additive has been tested under the SAE J1321 II and achieved a 13% increase in economy while reducing Nox emissions by 40+%(EPA 511 tests). The are no metallic additives or naphathalene. I have been using it for several months now and have had good results."
It is a fuel reformulator, which allows for more complete combustion. Today I am happy to report that I am an authorized sales rep for Mach 3 Super Eco Fuel Saver HD! Do a google search on fuel additives; there are hundreds of them. Next, refine the search on additives that have had the stringent SAE J1321 type II tests; any that have even had this test report a 4% increase in fuel economy or less.
Mach 3's J1321 Type II tests back in 2007' came back with a 13% increase for gas, and a 16% increase for diesel. This is astounding! And the product has since that that time been improved for industrial applications. It works great on cars, trucks, vans, motorhomes, chain saws, even my 51' Farmall H.

Thanks.

One fuel additive, Mileage Maxx, was tested (EPA, SAE) for 7 years and over 300 million miles and has proven to improve fuel economy by 5%- 20% depending on driving habits. It reduces visible exhaust & toxic emissions by 30%- 50%. I cleans fuel injectors, pump and fuel system. It will not harm engines are invalidate warranties. It is also an algaecide, maintains fuel integrity. This product is EPA registered, patented, California CARB approved and MSDS listed.
Go to my website www.bradfordfuelsavings.com for much more info on this unique product that is becoming very popular among school systems, long distance haulers and others desiring to save on fuel purchases.
Thanks,

Hey you guys in the US, are you still falling for this "fuel additive" crap? Haven't you learned anything yet?

If you still believe in it, let me know. I start selling this crap cheaper than anyone. No harm, except that I get richer.

Thanks.

BTW: Check out the website from this looser from Dipetane. Under "What is Dipetane" you can read all kinds of crap. But nothing about what it is, what it is made out of, etc. etc.

Well then they must like fuel additives in Canada, cause Canadian Tire can't keep the 15oz bottles of Eco Fuel Saver on the shelves.
www.ecofuelsaver.com
Read the consumer comments. It's not available in stores in the US at this time. I've used it since April of this year and have calculated about a 12% increase in fuel economy. Friends here in Ohio are also reporting similar increases.
It is available on Ebay (not by me) if you search for Eco Fuel Saver.

But they do help diesel cars a great deal. The stuff called "Power Pal" which you can get in truck stops works quite well with diesel engines.

Another trick that helps is tailgating tractor trailers when it is relatively safe to do so, like on the interstate.

Those 2 tricks helped a 79 VW Rabbit diesel to get fuel mileage up into the 80 range or so. Maybe 40-50 on Power Pal alone.

ProOne’s Fuel Maximizer is a super-concentrated fuel catalyst which creates more efficient combustion to produce more energy, significantly reduce fuel consumption and lower emissions. Ideal for industrial boilers and diesel engines of all sizes and mixed with diesel fuel at a 1:3,000 ratio, the technology works by breaking down large fuel particles and accelerating the combustion of hard-to-burn hydrocarbon molecules, resulting in more efficient combustion and producing more energy and less emissions per unit of fuel burned. By liberating more of the fuel's chemical energy, it improves fuel efficiency with less fuel wasted in the form of particulate emissions, reducing ash formation and virtually eliminating opacity out the exhaust.The technology has been thoroughly tested by independent laboratories and proven itself in numerous applications with truck fleets across the country. In addition to numerous emissions and lubricity tests, the product passed the SAE J1321 Joint TMC/SAE Fuel Consumption Procedure Type II Test run by prestigious Southwest Research Institute, something very few other fuel additives have been able to accomplish. Unlike 99% of the fuel treatments that are on the market which have the same 5 basic ingredients, ProOne Fuel Maximizer is a fuel catalyst that uses a completely different technology and had to go through extensive testing before being registered with the EPA.

Its a great productt to use for many types of equipment.

As usual the gullible are taken in, convinced they are seeing "improvements" in mileage that don't exist. Some rationalize that they are getting "more Power" becuase they can't stand the cognitive dissonance of having wasted money on this snake oil.

Of course, then there are those who can profit from selling this stuff - they go about posting the same message (gosh darn my F350 now gets 50 mpg!) on every site and forum they can find.

Check the Eco-fuel saver site and look for the ingredients. It's 90% alcohol! Isn't there already enough of that filth in our gas? Caveat Emptor!

I dont think so. If i use something and it doesnt work, ill happily not use it again and recommend others dont either. However dipetane does work for me. It improves the fuel consumption but, like most additives, it needs multiple treatments to work. Thereafter as long as you use it you keep the gains. I went from 600mls per tank avg to 640 avg on a 20 gal tank. However its real benifit is in emmisions. A triple dose after four consecutive doses eliminated the diesel smoke altogether and passed the NCT for me no problem. I also got 690 mls on that tank but wouldnt recommend it. It also aids cold starting but only slightly. There is a cold additive that i use in winter ill look it up when i get back home and update.

Also, yes, theres a lot of sh*t out there too. Its just a case of finding the right one. In the meantime, change the air filter and spark plugs if its petrol. Slightly thinner viscosity oils can help but only on more modern engines. And lastly, theres nothing wrong with a little extra pressure ib the tyres if your willing to pay a little comfort:)

However, the stuff for diesels does help. My parents used it and we knew how to calculate M/Gs. We wrote down the odometer reading each time we fueled. Then we would subtract from the last time and then divide by the number of gallons to fuel it completely. I presumed the stuff was close to gasoline, and just a small amount helped to clean the injectors and improve the cetane rating. With diesels, the additives help more in the winter, since the fuel can gel. It is a different mechanism of action from what goes in gasoline engines. Gasoline doesn't thicken.
