Hi TURBOSAM,

I think you can use acetone 2 ml per ltr of petrol....you can get it from any medicle store in 100 ml bottle.....also xylene can be used with same amount of 2ml per ltr if you can find it......2T is just 0.8 ml per ltr....

So with your 47 ltr full tank its 47 * 2 = 94 ml of acetone and xylene + 37 ml of castrol power 1 2T oil.......

You can start with using only acetone...this will reduce emission,improve performance and gives better FE.....but you need to find rigt amount for your car by trying different combinations....

Enjoy....

1> the dosage
2>should i use 2 t oil with it tooo
3> should i use xylene tooo

I would Say start with just acetone, once you are convinced just add all three in the next tankfull.

Default great!! am converted!!!

hi finetuning sir!! cheers:
just got 100 ml pure acetone from a medical store near by, got 20 ml syrenge,bought 10 liters of pure petrol in a can, mixed exactly 26 ml of acetone <3 lits in tank> mixed well and poured in the fuel tank......
kept fast idling for 20 minutes at 2000 rpm, then switched off. after 2 hrs started to go home <10 kms of highway drive on mumbai banglore highway<nh4> by passing pune city>
the car was flying... engine noise is tooooo low , feels like chemically supercharged... and no placebo effects.. am working on the same 10 to 25 engines on daily basis for last 5 yrs... plus drive them on an average 100 kms minimum per day for last 5 yrs .i know exactly how the engine behaves a the specific rpm and at certain throttle opening ,
so .... 20 yrs in auto field, .after many gurus in my field . got one GURU <i,e. finetuning> who convayed me ..not convinced me ... that there is something called as APPLIED ENGINEERING which we are forgetting... we all know terms like surface tension,co hesive bonds.boundry layes phenomenon. and combustion , flame propagation & oxidation.. but what we fail to streatch those very well known and well assimiliated facts of known science in to practical applications....
this is the diff between intelligent men like us and invested genius<not wasted>like u ....
hats off to u ..
i dont care even if the fuel efficiency wont improve,, the engine is more efficient as a heat exchanger now.
it gives me a satisfaction that am feeding my darling what she prefers to enjoy ... and i enjoy it ... thats it !!
great

Started using acetone at 2 to 2.5 ml per liter. I add acetone just before fuel pumped into the car. Hence I approximate it to somewhere close to 2ml (usually a lot lesser than 2.5ml per liter). The result is smoothness in engine. This is on a 3 month old swift. I have used it for 4 tanks continuously. Today thought of testing it without acetone. I did notice loss of smoothness.
Bottomline is I will continue using acetone from next tankful. The mileage has consistently been over 14 kmpl. But the difference is that it has stayed at 14 despite continuous use of AC (auto control set at 28 C).

SriShiva, I agree with your views there. Like I mentioned earlier, my FE actually went up even with increased use of the AC!

Interestingly, more people are answering "worked wonders" to the poll now!

Before adding acetone to my diesel car my mlg was 10.58 after adding it went upto 11.5 but after that it dropped to 8.1. Then i stopped acetone now the mlg is again 10.5 can anybody there to give a reason for this ? But the pick up is still there even after stopping acetone, vehicle has become smooth and silent. why all this ?

Hi swathyd,

I think acetone takes at least few tankful to pass on real benefits.....there after if we stop adding then car gets back to normal.....I tested this many time to come to conclusion......also with many vehicles I noticed drop in FE for 1 to 2 tanks but it then starts giving better then normal FE......normally FE gain is in the range of 5 to 15%.....most of people misunderstand the chemistry behind adding such tiny amount.....many thinks its carbon cleaning property working hence more FE......its true but not true as far as FE gain is concerned....better vapourisation of fuel is achieved by this hence smoothness of engine & better pick up......otherwise in very new car there is no question of carbon build up and so on......and most important aspect of this stuff is its emission reduction ability.....we must add this not to just increase peformance & FE but also to reduce pollution considerably...

Enjoy....

Well i wanted to try out the aceton for a long time in my OWN car but never got the time even had got small bottle of 99% pure one with me lying for so long. So finally i tried it today and hats off to you FINETUNING. Let me describe how i went on with it.

Well i read a lot about it here and links provided in this thread regarding acetone use and benefits. Suggested 2 friends to use it one eventually used it and felt increase in pickup (slightly), smoothness and silent engine. The other one didn't tried as he wants me to try it out. Well i had delayed in using this acetone experiment coz i hardly get the petrol filled in the car OR maybe i was so damn busy that i forgot about it.

Well lets leave that behind. Today when i went in the morning for my exam i saw that the fuel meter was showing almost empty so i went to petrol pump from there and got Rs 500 petrol filled with the CC and went to give the exam. When i came back it just struck my mind why not use acetone. Went back home after exam in excitement and and found the bottle lying near my computer table. Well bottle had like 15 - 17 ML acetone and poured that in the fuel tank. Started the car didn't felt anything, thought of idling it for 1 min. Did and slotted the first gear and oh boy it wheel spinned . Took it easy on her and went to take a quick ride. And it was so smooth and silent engine going on 80 KMPH and silent in 3rd gear. Well out of excitement pressed the accelerator full and car zoomed to 110KMPH in 3rd gear.

Man i was so amazed with it that i could not control myself and SMS Manikjeet when he was in skool lol. Told him to meet me at 1pm. Well i got late due to some fire incident that happened near my house. So we delayed and met at 1:45 instead.

Manik came i offered him keys of the car he was surprised and i told him i have used acetone and you drive car now. He started it and engine was silent and he drove the car redlining it in every gear. Took almost 70 KMPH in 2nd gear when i told him dude engine will get seized. So he took it easy and the third gear went to 100 and roundabout came. Manik was so damn happy to see the performance he didn't saw right or left and went straight to chemical shop and asked them about acetone. They had 2 packings one was 99% one was 99.5%. We got confused as packing were 500 ML and none of us had VITAMIN M all we had were PLASTIC M. So we took the pics of the bottles and i will upload them by tonight as i am unable to find the datacable of my phone.

So the MORAL of the story is Acetone works great. These are the effects i have seen till now.

1. Pickup and wheel spinned in 2nd gear ask MANIK about it. Didn't wheel spinned in first but did in 2nd gear.
2. Silent and smoothness of engine
3. Can use 4th gear @25 without knocking jut a bit of vibrations
4. Dunno if it is the effect of Acetone but car goes to 110 in 3rd gear and easily does 90.

And the car it has been tried on is M800 Carb.

All thanks goes to finetuning and others who have contributed to this thread.

Yes i am very impressed with the performance and yes the car didn't do a wheel spin in first but in second woooo the engine was silent and i can say the car felt great and i can say so because i have driven a carb m800 for over a lakh km in two year
If i had more room i think it would have crossed 120 with no problem
i will be adding acetone to my test mule (alto) and tell how the mpfi engine respond to it

You guys got a 1 lac+ km M800 to do 110 kph in 3rd gear?!?!

Are you sure it was acetone the chemist gave you?

Actually, yes....FT and others did mention it was most effective on carbed cars.

Well what Manik meant to say was he has driven a M800 with 1 lac+Km on it (his own). While my M800 is 1Lac 38K at current stage. And well the car is total stock still has the Maruti Original player and Autocop and Speakers.

And yes it was Acetone that i put into. It can't be NOS can it ?

And well next time we will make video if it pulling 110@3rd gear.
