1) Plenty of people on this site were open to acetone, tried it, and noticed no statistically significant gain.
2) Sterling Alan, the owner of PESWIKI, noticed zero gain on his car.
3) A lot of us subscribe to the notion that if acetone really worked, it would already be in gasoline. The same can be said for the fuel atomizer or other nonsense products.

As far as i understand, acetone works by making gasoline vaporize quicker. If it was added to gasoline at the pumps, it would go against the anti-evaporation components already in it. This should hlep fuel economy slightly by burnign all the fuel, including the larger droplets instead of just the very fine mist. (vapor burns, liquid doens't)

i would love to see a scientific test on here taht shows a benefit, but until then I'd agree it is nonsense.

No , its an Australian built Ford Falcon.
This car comes in 3.9 or 4 litre 6 cylinder OHC engines with rear wheel drive.

It is considerably bigger than a UK Ford Sierra.
