Acetone / Xylene Additive
Been adding 3oz of Xylene and 2 oz of Acetone for every 10 gal. gas
I've improved my mileage 11% over the last 3 fill ups
27.90 old mpg
30.97 new mpg
3.075 dif mpg
11.02%
Looking for a source for GP-7
to add in as well
The above adds .02 to a gallon of gas
I feel it's worth it
car running smoother too

Anyone else experimenting with additives??

Thanks
Dave

RE: Acetone / Xylene Additive
I am using it in both my vehicles 3 OZ acetone, 3 OZ Xylene, & 1 OZ 5w30 Synthetic motor oil.
1995 Geo was 32 MPG with additive 36.5 MPG . 3 tankfuls.
1992 Chevrolet 1500 2WD w/4.3 L w/speed manual transmission was 15MPG now over 22 MPG. I also have an EFIE on the pickup. Going to add fuel heater on both vehicles and an EFIE on the Geo.

RE: Acetone / Xylene Additive
Does doing this have any adverse effects on the fuel system/engine? Acetone is a pretty robust solvent. Gasoline is too, but I'm a little leary about adding something as strong as acetone to my tank.

RE: Acetone / Xylene Additive
This question always arises and for good reason. I'm not a scientist, so I can't tell you anything based upon scientific fact. However, I've done a whole lot of reading over the last year on whether acetone in small amounts (2-4 oz.) will hurt anything in the fuel system or engine. It very much seems that it's very safe at those levels. I would not hesitate to use it in my vehicles. I just haven't gotten around to experimenting with it yet.

As I said I am running it in both my vehicles my wife on her last fill up, this A.M., posted 37.3 MPG up from last time @ 36.5 MPG. It just keeps getting better. now I have to find the time for the EFIE on her vehicle.

RE: Acetone / Xylene Additive
Hmm, might be worth a try in my '05 Frontier. Seeing as how I've been researching this all day now, and realized that the acetone in question, is also used in the Seafoam treatment I run every oil change, I highly doubt it can harm the truck. And if I can get better than 19.1MPG, maybe bump it to 25, 30 would be GREAT, it can't hurt. And it's cheap. Sounds pretty win/win to me.
