Fuel Addatives


Recommended Posts

There is another discussion going on the hd2500 3500 board about adding acetone to fuel in extremely small quantities to improve vaporization. It references a Yahoo discussion board.

Has anyone tried this? Anyone willing to try it and report the results? Does anyone have any other addatives they use? Is this just :cheers: ?

 

I'm not willing to risk engine/warantee problems with someone's experience to convince me.

Why would you want to add something to your fuel in a diesel that actually takes away for the fuels abilty to lubicate the pump and the injectors as acetone has zero lube ability.

Snowman has good point and to carry it further you could ruin parts in your fuel system as

Acetone is very powerfull solvent. A fellow spends a pile for a Diesel use only Diesel fuel aditives and good one. Good one will lube your pump and increase MPG and usally the MPG increase will pay for the additive.

I use an addiative with each tank not just in cold weather, but I intend on running my truck to atleast 300K miles only 122k left to go.

Yes acetone is a powerful solvent and it will ruin plastic parts and has no lubrication abilities- but, the people are only using like 8oz(I have heard 5 and I have heard 10oz, so I just chose a happy median) per 20 gallons. By the time the acetone is mixed in with the fuel it would be so diluted I seriously doubt it would hurt anything. But on the same note, it would be so diluted I don't see how it could really help anything either. To anyone who uses it I say good luck and keep me updated, I am definately curious about it, but highly doubtful it would actually work.
