I pay around 22 rs for a 100Ml bottle at the local chemist shop and that does just fine for me.

Hi TURBOSAM,

If you are adding 2.5 ml then can try 2 ml and 1.5 ml to check FE & performance......also if with inreased power if you are driving hard then FE will drop so drive as usual.....find out which ratio is best for your 1.6 ltr engine.....at certain ratio it will give both FE and reasonable performance but let it run with this for at least 2 to 3 tanksful....also after few tanks if your PUC is due then keep an eye on emission content....thats important....enjoy boosted performance...

Default added 2 ml per lit.

to all my acetone buddies!!
today i added 2 ml per lit 20 ml for 10 lit of regular petrol..
my car <1.6 palio gtx>co was 0.02% now it is 0.02 %only
stilll tooo clean for 80+k running and 2001 model . now ill add xylene after a while ,one sight says 1 oz<@30ml> for 10 gallons! u say 2- 2.5 ml /lit.... i think i need to experiment a lot till a reach the magic ratio!
prey to god ,ill reach it sooner!!!

Hi TURBOSAM,

Basically xylene is a thinner.....it makes fuel more thinner.....thinner fuels evaporates fast and thats the need of the hour...we need fuel to get vapourised before combustion.....within a fraction of a second piston is moving up & down and if fuel is not vapourised fully then it cant take part in combustion.....

Also adding xylene improves octane rating slightly.....now with high mileage and carbon accumulation there is need of higher octane fuel......also if one thinks of adding 1 ml 2T oil then xylene helps in blending acetone & 2T mixture well.....

Adding xylene alone will give you boosted performance.....I tested this many times......but cant comment more about its FE benefits when used alone.....I used to add just 2 ml per ltr in petrol & enjoyed very good performance....

All these are secret additives with which we can easily increase FE......we know the level of adulteration & its our effort to pass on best to our loved cars......

Enjoy....

Default acetone buffs!

hi latest update1
as i told u some days back poured 2 ml acetone /lit petrol.
drove vrom bubhabdari to fiat plant at ranjangaon in ac with blistering heat. the car gave 130.2 kms in 10 litres in very good driving +excellent road conditions ,<which is way less than 16-20 what i used to get >
i think i need to experiment further,,
the driving experience is toooo good and am ok with the fe as long as the engine is happier!

Hi TURBOSAM,

It pays to find right ratio.....because onece thats acheived in anyones car then we just need to stick to it........in any case adding few ml will always be beneficial for any engine....thats very much true but as far as FE is concerrned we need to get it in right amount......you can further reduce it to just 1.5 ml and then 1 ml.......even 1 ml I found sufficient in many cars.....performance benefits will always be there.....all the best for your experiments...

Enjoy....

hi fine tunning
my latest update.
10 l of first class bpcl petrol measured in a caliberation vessel,
1.8 ml/lit of acetone measured in a cyringe,
drove the same 20 kms / trip .
same route,
same air pressure-28 psi cold,
same driving ,
same load in the car ,
same traffic <no traffic jams at all !!
good quality roads<best possible+on highway>
still figures are exactly 130.3 /10 lit
<without acetone it was 16-20>
-------------------------
now added 1.6 ml/lit ,with above mentioned parameters
and keeping an eye on the figures
day by day my car is getting healthier and healthies all thanks to u ... thanks a lot again may be its stronger so getting bullier and demanding more !! ha ha ha

dear turbosam,

I think you may be giving more pedal than usual to ensure that you benefit from acetone. Are you sure that you really feel the difference in power and it is not psychological. Just ask some of your friends who owns a palio 1.6 or who has driven your vehicle to have a ride and tell the difference.

Default i beg to differ!

after testing cars for 7 yrs, after testing palios @5-10cars/day for 7 yrs after driving @200 kms/day for 10 yrs ,i am sure what i am exactily saying,<p.s. i am to testing fiat cars , including for fuel efficiency -- officially> + i know how this management system works, how engine works and worked on atleast 2000+ palios since its launch<and before that too>
and recognised by FIAT itself as technico esperto de concessenario< technical expert of the non manufecturing side-- that is after sales>and a gtx and weekend owner i think i mean what i say< no offence intended

Hi TURBOSAM,

Keep testing to find right input....you can go up to just 1 ml per ltr.......I appreciate your desire for testing.....remember even little amount will be just suufficient to give reasonable pep & pass on FE....we are in search for this in each vehicle....

why this ratio differs?

Probable reason may be diffrent vehicle has different injector size & atomization technique....finer the spray of fuel better they get vaourised fast but again this varies due to many reasons like injector clogging....carbon build up inside engine.....

In many maruti 800 I found just 1 ml to be sufficient for FE gain of 10% and good performance......

One more thing....the main proponent of this theory many time suggest to reset ECU by disconnecting negative terminal of battery for more then 15 minutes if not getting decent FE......

Enjoy...

turbosam it is very good news to know that you are an expert on fiat vehicles. I too own a fiat vehicle, an adventure. I wish to know at what speed you get maximum mileage.

Very eager to know more about fiat vehicles from you.

Thumbs up After Effect of Acetone

Check the video out




Both are same videos of M800 doing 110@3rd gear after adding acetone. FE not yet calculated but its almost same coz daily drive is more than 65km and 500Rs. petrol still lasts 3 days.

I have been using acetone in my Ikon 1.6 for atleast an year now and here are clear views from my experience:

I have been adding 110ml of acetone to 45 litres of my tank. What I do is I keep a syringe and acetone bottle with me and get half tank filled and then put in the acetone and then the rest 20-25 litres. Ofcourse the petrol pump staff has started calling me 'daaktar babu'. Its kinda funny sight for the people as well and often get to hear 'dekh gaadi ke injection laga raha hai...ha ahah...' but anyways, here is what I noticed:

On my frequent highway trips I used to get an FE of 12.5km/l at the most with A/c on all the time. The FE has miraculously risen to 14 (which even my friend's Ikon 1.3 dreams of!).....however, one thing I noticed is that result of adding acetone is quite unpredictable...sometimes the FE stays around 13 and at max I have seen 15 too!...The engine has gone very slick and smooth, no damages seen so far and do not expect them as well.
The low end grunt has risen and I lag caused with A/c on at max. has reduced. Was very scared to use it on my brand new car but I am totally satisfied with my decision. The car feels more powerful and there i indeed get a solid feel of 5-10 more bhp. Just a personal review.
