From what I can see there has not been a proper scientific study undertaken into the effect of adding tiny amounts of acetone to petrol/gas/benzin. The whole thing does stink of snake oil but I am interested wether there is any benefit in using acetone to raise the octane level in fuel or at the least, wether acetone somehow interacts with the fuel. I would like to think that the oil companies are doing the right thing by us and producing the best quality fuel that they can.
