Acetone as octane booster

10 posts in this topic

Has anybody run funny fuels?

"Acetone said to improve the fuel's ability to vaporize completely by eliminating the surface tension that causes an increase in particulate vaporization temperature."

Im almost certain like Methanol, it could damage the rubber tank tubes.

Would Acetone clear up clogged jets?

I meant as an addictive, not pure acetone.

You should be able to run it in a 1% scenario... or am I missing the point completely?

The only reason to raise octane above pump value is to prevent pre-ignition. You might get better throttle response, but no improvement in HP with the stock compression, IMHO.

What is your goal? To increase octane or are you buying into the old rumors that it made your get better HP and mileage if you put acetone in your tank?

If you want to increase octane look into toluene and xylene.

Define safe!

Take a look at your typical auto parts octane booster; it has tolulyene or similar.

What is the point, anyway?

As acetone makes fuel atomise better... I thought It could also help clean out the carb?

Most carbs get dirty from dirt, not varnish. And if the Varnish is old enough, 1% acetone will make no difference.............
