I’m no expert but it sounds like a really stupid thing to do.

Great idea. Your gas milage will increase greatly once the Fleetwood craps out on you and you have to ride the bus.

You could have bought another gallon of gas, then you would have had two gallons and been able to travel twice as far.

Many people are mixing acetone with their gas. They say it improves the mpg.

WHAT? There are many plastic parts in the fuel system of that vintage car that can be eroded by acetone... Who told you it was a good idea? Unless I was assured by a Cadillac Fuel System Engineer that all parts in the fuel pathway, including the injectors were acetone proof, I would not do it.

Let me get this straight.

I was trying to put some pure acetone which I just bought for 5 dollars for 32oz into my car, and i only had about a gallon of gas inside

You purchase acetone at $20/gal to get better mileage?

How about just buying more gasoline? You should get about 6 gallons plus. At least your travel range would increase without fouling fuel lines, filters etc.

But hey, it's your car.

Pure acetone?

Personally, I use perfumed nail polish remover as it makes the exhaust smell pretty.

I wonder if this thread is going to get zotted at all. The poster is obviously not a very sharp person (to say the least) and FReepers are compassionate, if not anything else.

You will not get better gas mileage from acetone until you learn to properly write a simple declaritive and at least semi-literate sentence.

That would be a good start to better gas mileage, saving the precious “environment” and preventing so called “global warming?.

Just in case anybody is taking this troll seriously...

1. Acetone has a lower heat content than gasoline but costs more. It is not economical. Or magic.

2. If you uses enough of it you can actually be charged for the missing fuel taxes you are avoiding.

3. Acetone can be harmful to a variety of gaskets, Orings and hoses etc.

Actually most nail polish remover is acetone free because of health issues.

Vintage used as year of manufacture... not in the "classic car" sense.

Actually, acetone "eats" fake fingernails. Lots of women have fake nails, therefore they use acetone free nail polish remover, in between visits to Little Saigon.

Don’t use the little measuring cup things for acetone. That’s what styrofoam coffee cups are for.

MPG improvement? no, I do think you sniffed the acetone fumes for way too long.
