    shotgun not me, would be too afraid of messing the car up and then trying to explain it to the garage when you try and get it fixed. it may work, bet my dad could test it at work but would get a rolicking so prob not worth it

    Cheap fuel anyway, if fuel was only £1.50 a GALLON, then we wouldn't even be talking about this at all.

    It also depends on how you drive. Even IF acetone increases combustion efficiency, then driving more sensibly may even account for the improved mpg.

    I am always sceptical of these massive claims by people.

    It would be interesting to see some UK tested results?

    I've seen those fuel injection cleaner fluids at Halfrauds that you put in petrol/deisel on a full tank, guess this would work in a similar way.

    Might do a lot of damage as well, I think someone may be stretching the truth about the MPG, he takes out a box and the spare wheel and it improves by 2.5 mpg! I don't think so, engine longevity? is he kidding that stuff doesn't have any lube factor to it.
