Here are some other ways to improve gas mileage.

* Get the right spark plugs: We like NGK V-Power. ( They have a proper resistance level that will not short out the high voltage secondary during moist or very cold weather.
* Use the right oil:We like Torco Petroleum Base TR-1. (, Torco Oil: 562-906-2120)
* Use the right oil filter: We like Baldwin or Donaldson. Baldwin Filters are available from any Peterbilt Truck shop. We also use Donaldson filters #P551300 in a wide number of cars such as Toyota, Ford, Chrysler and Mazda products with the 3/4 x16 thread size.
* The right thermostat temp is 195. A hotter engine has better efficiency and lasts longer. NEVER use a cold thermostat setting.
* Find the best gasoline station in your area, preferably one without alcohol. The author prefers Texaco, Casey, Chevron and Cenex. I fear you will not get great mileage by putting acetone in bad gas. At least we never have.
* THEN, add a little acetone to the fuel. Work with different amounts from 1-3 oz. per 10 gallons till you find what is best for your vehicle. The better condition an engine is in, the better improvement you will see in MPG from the changes proposed here. A poor engine will not show much, if any, gain.

2 oz. Acetone per 10 Gallons Gasoline

We prefer 2 oz. acetone per ten US gallons in gasoline and 1-2 oz. per ten US gallons in diesel fuel. Place this amount in your vehicles for every tankful as a starting point. Note the amount of acetone has been misrepresented by 100 to 200 times too much-probably to discourage its use. Stick to the correct values given here. Please disregard misinformation by non-experts or by the unscrupulous.

How To Find the Best Gas Prices In YOUR Neighborhood Visit: or

Gasoline prices change frequently and may vary by as much as 20% within only a few blocks it is important to be able locate the service station with the lowest priced fuel. These web sites allow motorists to target the lowest priced stations to save money when filling up at the pumps!
BE WARY of other additives out there claiming to improve gas mileage, such as expensive "gas pills." These don't improve mileage by very much after factoring the expense of buying the product. Make sure they have studied the product and can show you documented proof of the research.
The Acetone Secret to Increasing Gas Mileage!
Louis LaPointe, author of “Secrets the Oil Companies Do Not Want You To Know!

Acetone, often known as fingernail polish remover, can be safely and easily used as a fuel additive in your car, truck, motorcycle, etc. It not only improves mileage but cuts pollution dramatically and gives longer life to engines.

Acetone improves the vaporization process and allows good burning to continue without lapses during the latter phase of second stage where cylinder volume is rapidly increasing. Acetone generates a very smooth and complete burn. No ping. No hesitation. No jerking. No stalling. No wasted fuel. An additive, like acetone, is simply something that is added to your gasoline to enhance the efficiency of your engine, fuel system and improve gas mileage and reduce pollution (emissions) as a result.

This article probably draws conclusions that Big Oil and the American Car Manufacturers and others do NOT want you to know. They apparently suffer from unlimited corporate GREED. They seem to want us to get bad mileage, because if they wanted good mileage, we would have excellent mileage. So we get worse fuel, not better. I am a very truthful person. I would never publish a false technical statement deliberately. Nor would I publish anything I have not verified over and over and over. I have no motive or reason to lie. It surely is not for cash. However, it is now well known that only pure acetone works. A fake test would not use the good stuff but some from a tainted source. Existing fuel lacks the quality we need for good mileage. You have the ability now to make your gasoline and diesel fuel much better. It will save you money and help the air we all must breathe. It can be like recycling so we are at least trying to make a better world for ourselves and our kids and their kids. The industry seems determined to halt the use of acetone and to stop non-profit organizations that are a public service trying to boost mileage, lower pollution and halt atmospheric warming. The threat of acetone (the 'A' word) has been feared by the oil industry for many years. They most likely fear that good mileage will cost them billions. They will have to stop acetone AND xylene AND a dozen other chemicals that can improve gas mileage. Plus, they will have to shoot down several devices that create fantastic vaporization, thereby increasing gas mileage. They will undoubtedly try because of the billions of dollars involved. Those are YOUR billions they want. They remain committed to taking your money from you. Possibly because they know petroleum is a dwindling commodity and they want to get all the loot they can before the stuff runs out. And it WILL run out.

Acetone is a very inexpensive fix (at only 23 cents/oz.) to the problem of low mileage and this makes them furious. You only need an ounce or two per fill, depending in the size of your fuel tank. People who own cars with good mileage tend to keep them. Cars with good mileage stay on the road until they fall apart. The companies fear that a drop in oil usage due to high mileage will cause them to enter a lower demand and overproduction phase and car prices may drop. It is obvious they want to keep those refineries and car factories busy and productive regardless of the consequences. Thus they love ethanol. Good mileage is their worst enemy so their agenda is to kill mileage. People have falsely claimed acetone causes gasoline to burn faster and thereby loses mileage. This is NOT true. Pure acetone does not cause fuel to burn faster, but to burn BETTER. Acetone and other methyl-carrying hydrocarbons are among the slowest burning chemicals known to man. Here is how they operate. They survive the heat of combustion for a very long time.They burn very slowly. By their fierce vibrations, they break apart the massive fuel fragments that
surround them. Thus, they encourage great vaporization, the key to good gas mileage. I have used acetone in gasoline, in diesel fuel and in jet fuel (JP-4) for over 50 years. I was the first to do so for mileage and have tested fuels independently and am an authority on this important subject.

Acetone: Where to Get the Good Stuff

Get good quality 100% acetone from your local beauty supply store. Not all just sell to beauticians, but to the public. We like Sally Beauty Supply (locations all over the US) and get Beauty Secrets Pure Acetone, a gallon (64 oz.) runs about $15.00. 32 oz. runs about $8.99.

Do not buy acetone from drug stores. I recently tried bad acetone with good gasoline in two of my cars. Both suffered a small decline in MPG from their normal good mileage. I then ran all that gas out and went back to the beauty supply acetone. The cars' mileage recovered to what it had been.

Only reagent grade acetone or technical grade is the normal acetone we buy from chemical supply houses, such as Xylene is OK to purchase at Home Depot. The three chemical additives for gasoline and diesel we test most often are acetone, xylene and GP-7 from Torco International (562-906- 2120).

We have found the following ratios to be preferred:
2-3 oz. acetone per 10 US gallons in gasoline
2 oz. acetone per 10 US gallons in diesel fuel.

Place this amount in every tankful of gas you use. Please be careful to not get any acetone on the paint of your car as it will remove paint. You can use a squeeze bottle and hold a damp rag or cloth underneath to catch any drips. Please disregard information found elsewhere that indicate to use 100 to 200 times more acetone than what we recommend. This is probably to discourage its use because this amount will not benefit your mileage in any way. All devices or additives that improve mileage are liable to be attacked by those who stand to lose big money if engines last too long. Getting good mileage and long engine life go together. Stick to the correct values given here.

Cars of our friends and family have doubled their MPG and greatly reduced pollution.
You can too!
