gas saver is to use something that contains more energy than petrol like diesel.

Acetone was a passing fad, it was proven to not help in the least. Not to mention it was capable of attacking some rubber components in fuel systems. If acetone could really do what some have claimed, you can bet Obama and his enviro-whacko EPA types would have mandated its addition to all gasoline.

I'm going to let you slide this time Jerry. Next time it's going to be a battle for sure haha

Anyways, no the only additive I'd ever put in my tank is Seafoam, and that's not for more mpgs.

I had this problem with rough idle at startup for about 6-10 seconds. Did all the tricks to fix it. Cleaned throttle body/sensors, tried the Seafoam tricks, checked connections, eveything I could think of and find online. Nothing.
Was thinking that I may have to pull the dam fuel pump when I came accross a thread on Lucas fuel injector cleaner and upper cylinder lubricant. Figured what the hell. Put a bottle in with a full tank of gas and the rough startup idle was fixed. This was about 6ish tanks of gas ago and everything now purrrs like a kitten.
I'll def be putting Lucus in my tank every oil change now.

Although I haven't used it myself, my brother just put Seafoam into his 93 Suburban and he said it runs a lot smoother now. My neighbor swears by it too. Just food for thought!

I use seafoam but usually suck it into a vacuum line. Lucas fuel treatment works great. I used to get it for free at work. I have a 3 cyl Metro for fuel mileage and run 2 oz of acetone in every tank. It cleans your fuel system really good but I don't notice any increase in mileage or smoothness. To each his own!

Shhhh - don't say it too loud - if one of the major oil companies found out that adding acetone will give better mileage, they'll do it and get the jump on the competition. They'd get all the business.

Or do you think they may have already tried it?


When you add Acetone to the fuel you need to also add prune juice to that tank too - it prevents the cat converter from becoming constipated.

The proponents of Acetone if the fuel should also drink lots of it - as they are full of ---.

Everyone knows seafoam works good. Not as good as the hype but good. Lucas you guys be the judge for yourself. I've used it and it works good for me. Use it or don't use it, I don't care! Acetone, I use 2oz per tank. Ethanol decreases fuel mileage and gums everything up. "Shush don't tell anybody so it gets out but the oil companies put that in our gas and it hurts mileage, performance and cruds everything up". Acetone at my dosage cuts through the gum and varnish. Shush don't tell anybody or they will laugh at you and say you're crazy, but it doesn't matter cause you know it works and were trying to help others. I don't think acetone does anything for fuel economy or power.

Oh and a friend uses a small percentage of biodiesel in his gas truck. Maybe 5 gallons in his 34 gallon tank. He says he uses it for a great upper cylinder lube and biodiesel is a solvent and keeps his fuel system clean! Shush don't tell anybody, especially the oil or car companies!

CAREFULL it will gum up the flux capacitor and you will need to use lightning to gather the necessary 2.71 gigawhats of juice needed to power a 4 banger
