Hi
I have read about this lots on the veggie diesel forum, and also have spoken to a guy who runs a Surf on the same mix as me, 85% WVO, 15% petrol, but he also adds 30ml Acetone and 30ml Vegiboost to each 20L cubie.

Stated he noticed a real difference, but I wondered if this is a physcological reaction, not actually quantifiable.

Is it really worth mixing this stuff in?

Have you started now Ged? At what ratio?

The original site states 0.78ml per litre; this gives 15.6ml per 20L cubie.

The mrs reckons you can get the 100% stuff from Boots the chemist; anyone found it yet?

its hard to quantify this time of year, as im just getting ready to start putting misfuel in aswell. but it "seemed" to run better with more poke.

was it down to the acetone? possibly, but at 99p for 100ml from home bargains i`ll keep chucking it in Wink
