I'll have my official one oz

I'll have my official one oz per 10 gallon results tomorrow, and I've got a strong feeling they'll suck terribly, so I'ma forego acetone and try IAT, then tires prolly (cuz I wanna have it done so I can keep using them) and then I'll revisit with a stronger concentration.

Here are my results for 1 oz

Here are my results for 1 oz of acetone per 10 gallons. I ran three tanks, but I tossed the first one due to bad alignment.

The next two gave me these totals:

346.3 miles
9.039 gallons
38.3 mpg
.2 mpg loss

I will try a 3 oz concentration sometime later, but right now I'm trying the IAT mod, the car had a funny smell this morning, so I dunno if it is that or what, I dunno, car seems to run fine, anyone else with a b2 wanna try it real quick and tell me what it does? I'm using 110ohms, I might use some more ohms if I decide I want to take it down from like 220 degress to 150 or something, if I'm thinking it is not running the best.

I'm beginning to wonder if

I'm beginning to wonder if acetone only works on dirty inefficient carborated cars and not little fuel injected cars like ours. perhaps our vehicles are already too efficient for there to be much room to grow..

Too efficient my ***.

Too efficient my ***. Someone on here has an si that gets 40+ mpgs. DPFI is in no way efficient, damn these things, I swear, I've seen stats from lots of stuff loving acetone, look to larry! There is hope, I am only one testor.

you make a good point. the DPFI might actually be counter-productive with a lot of these mods. Since honda was the only one who made a crappy DPFI system, no one else has to deal with the "technology."

DieMaster got a huge MPG boost after swapping to MPFI. As we both know, MPFI is way more tunable than DPFI as well. Maybe after the MPFI swap things will start looking up.

Seeing this leads me to believe that maybe some ECM's take a bit longer to calibrate to acetone in fuel...

2001 Chevy suburban
90k+ miles
used a scan gauge computer that plugs into diagnostic port for hard numbers.
I also live on a mountain so that is why the numbers are low
using dino oil and no ethanol in gas
using 89 octane rated gas from the same pump at the same exxon at the approximate same time of day

before acetone mpg per tank
11.2

After acetone
1st tank 13.2 (2 oz per 10 gallons of gas)
2nd tank 13.6 (3 oz per 10 gallons of gas)
3rd Tank 13.8 (3 oz per 10 gallons of gas)
4th tank 13.3 (emergency bat out of he** driving up a mountain)
5th tank 14.1 mpg (3oz per 10 gallons of gas)
I just caught this on a general forum...I asked the driver to join this one. No reply.

Generally I just unplug my

Generally I just unplug my ecu for a night after I do something like acetone so it resets, then I have the least possible time. It could also be the whatev cleaning of the acetone having its effect.
