I do know that the military uses stuff called JP8 which is kind of a quasi diesel/jet fuel/etc. Only 2 oz per 10 gallons should be relatively harmless, I'd think.

OK MY FINDINGS ARE, I got the same mpg as when I use POWER SERVICE, but PS cost $4.99 and I pour the whole quart in my 38 gallon tank. 8 OZ of ACETONE cost .85 cents. SO I GOT 15.6 MPG IN THE CITY WITH BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC and I ALSO HAD TO IDLE, IN THE DRIVE-THUR. SINCE IT'S ALWAYS WARM IN MIAMI, I DON'T NEED THE ANTI-GELLING IN THE PS. I WILL KEEP USING THE 8 OZ OF ACETONE.

I have read this other places and thought it was a joke... But I just went to that web-site that you posted and read it from start to finish.. I will be trying that!  It sounds like 1oz to 3oz max will *** Acetone in diesel fuel, who would have ever thought....

JP8 is a standard of jet fuel, but all jet fuel is basically a mix of diesel fuel and kerosene, Jet A / Jet B etc
