I think acetone won't work

I think if your car is fairly new, the acetone won't work because a well-functioning engine achieves about 98% complete combustion. Then where will the extra energy come from?

In about 2 or 3 days I'm going to try acetone in my car and about 8 or 9 days after that I will make a new thread for people to see my results. I don't plan on using acetone all the time because it honestly makes me really nervous about putting it in my car but I will do it once and if the results are really good I may do it once every 5 fill ups or something along those lines.
