Unrelated, but I found that laquer thinner in gas does NOT clean a catalytic converter, but does make whole car run better, if done in one nice, long, hot shot. Scott Kilmer is wrong. I didn't destroy the car, either. And I used a strong concentration..
I'm running paint waste solvent in my car as we speak. It contains Acetone, Toluene and Xylene and a few more solvents. If any thing I have seen a increase in fuel consumption. It does help with knock at WOT high load.
The engine runs the same as if it would on pump. Depending on the batch I will adjust the fuel and timing tables to keep my A/F ratios the same as pump.
