Gas additive for 10-20% better mileage

I bought a 2008 Prius new. It now has 180,000 kms. on it and runs perfectly. I run a mixture of 1 ounce acetone to 10 gallons gas and I get an average of 10 to 20 % increase in mileage in weather 40f and warmer. It is basically like running high test fuel with more octane. If you want more info, Google search for gasoline and acetone mix and read about it. I am here to tell you, IT WORKS! If you mix too much acetone in the fuel, it WILL cause damage, burn valves, melt pistons ect. I found that the 1 ounce to 10 gallon ratio is a safe and effective amount. Hey, If it saves you $10.00 per tank for about $0.10 of acetone, why not.
