I figure I had about 10/11 gal in tank so about 1 oz. per gal.
1oz per gallon? Is that basicly the whole can? Sounds like alot.

The trip to my mothers, 55 miles each way mostly north/south. 85% hwy 15% city


North 38mpg
south 35.9 mpg...... average.. 36.95 mpg. lots of traffic on the way home.


This is by far the best mpg I have got on this trip. I take this trip maybe 2 times a month for years, my best ever previous was 34.5 average.
So does the Ether work? It looks promising, But I need to do more testing.

some of you guys should give it a try and post your results.
If there's an easier way to get liquid ether, I'll test it in my Geo with the SG and do another video experiment if you want.

BTW, what was the temperature and wind like when you did your trip with ether? Could we see a map of your route? Did the car drive/smell/look funny?

The only thing that worried me was the ether. There is nothing more irresponsible and depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge, and i knew we would be getting into that rotten stuff sooner or later...

HA HA HA HA HA yeah the cost is going to be a factor - the guy that told me about it called tonight and I will call him back tonight and ask him for more info.

You may want to mix it in a small amount of gasoline and then add to the tank so that it doesn't disolve the filler spout should yours be plastic. This will also show how well it mixes with gasoline.

Just so you all know about ether a little . . . a drop on my gas stove 1 foot from a lit burner ignited from the fumes traveling towards the heat so BE CAREFUL!!

It's going to be difficult for me to avoid going on a Hunter S. Thompson inspired binge when I put this crap into my car if I try it.

weather was about 70F with 5-10 mph winds from the south. I have made this trip a 100 times in all kinds of weather conditions. my average mpg for the trip is about 31. last summer I had a trip of 34.5 mpg on a nice calm sunny day that was the best tip ever until today.

Yes I dumped in the whole can, is it too much? maybe I could use less?
car did not look, smell or run funny. however when I removed the gas cap I could really smell the ether.
sorry no map I can't figure out how to save or copy one, without printing it.
