    Anyone here tested this fuel saving method before?

    By adding Acetone and Xylene to your gas tank, will it work or not?
    http://www.metacafe.com/watch/899474/gas_saving_tip/

    If it does really works, where can I find it and how much will it cost?
    Thanks in advance.

    Where the heck does one get bulk Acetone and Xylene in Malaysia?.. Don't we know that there's too many restrictions and hassle for Malaysians on many items?..lets not compare things that can be done in the west and here. Here, you wanna buy caustic soda also you need a permit.

    I would rather not take chances on my engine using unproven technology or techniques like this.

    I think the best fuel saving method is to drive in an easy manner, like that article highlighted by one of the forumer earlier.

    I can tell you if for example you can use paint thinner as fuel substitute, I bet the BN led gahmen will do something to stop everyone from buying..why?..their cash cow Petronas will go bust in no time!.
    Why do you think Petronas is sitting happy at current circumstances, because we burn unneccessary fuel by traffic jams at Federal Highway and in KL, and travel to many popular destinations by longer routes and lousy roads. The icing is that public transport is still bad in 2008 where the working class have to rely on own vehicle that runs on petrol!.

    but seriously - would you 'berani' pour a bottle of Acetone [RM6] into the tank of your car that is costing you a third of your salary!

    eh..pardon my blursotongness. I tot we dont use our own fuel? It being terra mera better grade for xpot only? If betul, petronas xport so earn income...(what the ikan dey do with profits is NOT the subject here)

    While back at the ranch,we can still water or palm oil to run own engines and therefore cut down on impot of inferior fuels? no??

    petronas can only go bust if gomen use its money (sori! OUR money!!!!!) to bail out incompetent local bizzmen, politician-crooked bizzmen-wannabes, fund white elephant projects, buy rusting spaceship, send ego-boosting citizen to space, etectetcetcetc...
