Dear jay,

Indeed its to be added directly in petrol tank....but through funnel having pipe which goes deep inside tank so that mixture mixes well while adding....prepare mixture by adding small quantity of regular petrol in small bottle then add acetone according to liters of petrol at the rate of 2.5 ml per liter....directly pour through funnel & see the difference......

Enjoy........

how much does Acetone costs......two months before I tried to buy toluene and i was very much disappointed to hear that you will not get toluene unless you have a lab or something... hope it is not the same with acetone..

20-22 bucks for a 100 ml bottle, in a full tank of 30 litres u need to fill only 75 ml. 2.5 ml per litre as per the data provided.
Acetone is available at any chemist/ medical shop.
Its basically the stuff that women use to take off their nail polish

Deal All Bhpians,

I started using acetone in almost 50th vehicle including two wheelers.Most interesting thing is we feel very good response from engine....it becomes very smooth & power increament can be felt.Load of A/C can be checked instantly....after running with acetone fora few Km.....it becomes more smooth & powerful.I found it not at all harmful adding 2.5ml per liter of petrol.
I knindly advise to read the links........

Enjoy...............

thanks finetuning have tried on my OHC it definately moves better then before and seems to take higher gears more than usual. As far as the article on the site it says that it has been tried for years (more than 25) by the author on his cars and with no defects. FE needs to be checked which will take some time. I also have read that the quantity to be added is 0.7 to 0.8 ml per litre of petrol which is what I added and the result is great. To quote it said " less is more ".

Thanks once again

based on finetuning's advice, I too went and brought acetone from the medical shop (I heard they use acetone for removing the nail polish in beauty parlors coz its cheap compared to the nail polish remover :-)) anyways, as finetuning said to add 2.5 ml /litre of petrol I did so using the siringe to make sure its accurate and since then I have become fan of acetone, I fill my tank full and note down the litres filled and add the acetone (2.5ml/litre), my engine runs smooth and donno about the milage though, it should give more than normal. combustion is quick and have observed no jerks since then. and huh I got this acetone for 28 bucks for 100ml bottle.
thanks finetuning

Question Are you sure about this ratio?

Result is extremly good.
1)I found much smoother engine running immidiatly after adding acetone.

2)Idles seems to be very smooth.Can be felt at signals.

3)Good increase in power felt.Car feels very much responsive.Just add the pedal & feel the difference.

4)Exhaust seems to be very very less.Infact I bent down to check it many times but its almost nill or very very less.No exhaust smell as seen earlier.Yet to check exhuast reading.

With this response ...I started using in my scooty pep scooter.....same response...bike is now with more power ...pick up.....so much smoother with less exhaut..

In all above cases...mileage not yert checked.......

I advise members to try it.Remenber just add 2.5 ml per liter of petrol....& 1.5 ml per liter of diesel.....Use injection syringe for accurate measurement.In bike...u can add directly in tank....or mix it with petrol in a bottle then add.....dont allow it to touch painted parts.......



this are the links....to read.....

Enjoy....
Hey finetuning, I did some research on the net based on your link and it says for the best FE we need to add .78ml/litre of petrol but you say 2.5ml/litre. where did you get this ratio to be added?
I think 2.5ml/litre is too high. lemme see what can I did. *thanks*

Dear Amit,
Good that u tried & found the difference....u r right any tiny amount is good but keep trying till u find a good balance between power & FE....max limit will be 2.5 ml........do read this link..http://www.lubedev.com/smartgas/faq.htm
which states........

How much acetone do I put into my fuel? For gasoline we use about three oz. per ten US gallons. Sometimes we use four oz. per ten gal. For diesel we use about two oz. per ten US gallons. That is equal to about 2.5 ml per liter for gasoline and about 1.5 ml per liter for diesel. Any tiny amount is better than none. No engine can deliver good MPG without some acetone.

Enjoy & spread benefits to all.................

Dear RoaringEngine,

Thanks for ur interest.......do read the article once again carefully...which states that 0.781 ml per liter is equal to 1 Oz.per ten gallon......now normal requirement is 2 to 4 Oz per ten gallon.....so 3 Oz.per ten gallon which is most desirable translates into 0.781 x 3 = 2.5 ml........its accurate calculation.Dont get confused with Americal Weight standards....

1 Gallon = 3.7854 liter......
10 Gallon = 37.85=38 liter
1 Oz = 28 ml....

For conversion read this link...http://www.curezone.com/conversions.asp

Now adding 1 Oz per 10 gallons means adding 28 ml per 38 liter means adding
0.7368 ml per liter........

Adding 3 Oz per 10 gallons means adding 28x3=84 ml per 38 liter means adding 84/38=.2.210 ml per liter......which is being rounded off to 2.5 ml per liter of petrol........

All readers are advised to study this if having any confusion.......

Amount of 2.5 ml per liter is very much desirable..........

Enjoy

Dear Amit,

No harm if u added only 0.78 ml per liter.....its 1 Oz per 10 gallon of petrol..we need to add at least 3 oz per 10 gallons hence 0.78 x 3 =2.34 ml rounded off to roughly 22.5 ml....do read the following.........

I have tried in almost all types of vehicles......maruti 800,esteem,baleno,indigo,indica,scooty pep,honda activa to name a few.............

Also it can be added to any kind of petrol diesel....as ita a vapourising additive....it helps in total fuel burning............

I do not understand why there is so much hesitation to this simple yet very effective treatment to engine at no extra cost....to get exact mileage figure is time consuming considering our indian driving condition....but one thing is sure its on upside......I found in my esteem an increament of 1 km/lt from 11 to 12..........with very good power performance.......

ppl spend so much money on so many modificaton resulting in certain or no gains....I have seen ppl spending as high as 20k on many type of modofication....but this simple yet very effective method is going unnoticed???? Is it because its so cheap??? Is it because it directly improves power within few seconds at no extra cost as we are used to spending more money time getting result?????? I hope ppl will break this habit.....

Its just a little effort of doing this with right understanding......until we cant try how can we get the result???

A lot of information available regarding this............but still I find....ppl still suspicious....agreed that its relating to ENGINE......but then do read the stuff come to the right conclusion..........

Enjoy.............
