I learned from an automotive engineer in Texas who did extensive research into the use of acetone as a fuel additive. He posted it under "Smart Gas". Essentially acetone, a solvent, evaporates very quickly in the open. It's molecules are vibrating extremely fast! When added to gasoline, during the combustion process, the acetone breaks up the tiny droplets of gasoline even further, creating a more complete burn. In addition to better fuel economy and performance, there is little or no gasoline leaking down the cylinder walls or creating excess carbon in the combustion chambers. All that is needed are 3 or 4 ounces per fill-up with gas to achieve the desirable results. Adding more will not improve the process. I have used this on my '03 Honda Accord for the many years I have owned it without problem. And it performs predictably. RM
