Well welcome fellow Vibe owner, my vibe is an '04 auto and I have similar goals for my vehicle as I commute hwy 51 miles each way every day.

Here is an unofficial update on acetone as I just went through my first tank using it. I saw a jump of nearly 3mpg to a new high of 36mpg.

The changes I made with this tank were; inflated tires to 44psi, ran the a/c only on the morning commute, ran the fan with windows up on the night trip home. I'm sure all three contribute to the gain, but hopefully the next fill up will support or debunk this change.

As far as how much acetone, I am using 1mL/Gal

I'll keep you posted on the changes and I can't wait until I get my Scangauge.
