Double your gas mileage!!!

Looks like adding this stuff in your fuel will lead to huge savings at the pump... What do you guys think? Anyone heard of this or tried it?

The video is great and belieable except the last part in which they talk about the acetone. I call that BS because otherwise everyone in this planet would be using already 2oz of acetone to increase 10mpg right?

I have my reservations to believe the last portion of the video.

I did add that and it actually tripled my gas mileage, and now hot chicks try to rape me constantly, and people bring me delicious baked goods in a non stop manner. Also my hair is softer and shinier.

I tried using nail polish remover (acetone), but I found that shampoo is better. I added about 100whp to my performance and am getting ~50mpg (up from 20!) by just adding one bottle of shampoo to every tank (Selsun Blue seems to work best, that dandruff medicine must be super volatile). With these awesome results, I'm psyched to try other household reagents... Windex, Tide, Brasso, Mop-n-glo, and Pledge are at the top of my list... maybe toothpaste too. The ECU tends to adapt after a few miles, so don't rule out a an additive too quickly. My buggy fuel pump was miraculously healed with a mixture of shampoo and vagisil, for those suffering from FP woes.

Awesome post, as most people don't know about this super smart chemistry stuff, especially auto and perto comapnies. Hydrogen, Biodiesel.... what a joke. Acetone is the solution to peak-oil, and shampoo alone may well power our vehicles if acetone reserves ever dwindle.

Oh, and I just remembered that Mayonaise mixed with Crisco and shampoo (20/20/60% ratio, add 50mL to every 10 galons petro) also produces silmilar results. Glad to see that the forum has a green presence!
