We don't want to be responsible for encouraging someone without the correct chemical understanding to begin producing their own homemade fuel additives.
A fuel additive is a substance that improves gas mileage once it is added to the normal fuel mixture. By enhancing and expanding the natural effect of the existing fuel components, the additive should assist the fuel in creating a better performing engine resulting in more power for less fuel, or greater mileage with less effort, either of which should result in better gas mileage. Typically, alcohol is a part of the fuel additive components to assist in cleaning and more efficiently causing the fuel to be consumed by the engine.
Don't start pouring your favorite sipping whiskey into your gas tank just yet! A proper fuel additive is a bit more complex than alcohol although this is an additive often found when you pump gas from the pump. Ethanol is often the name you find associated with your gasoline when you pull up to the pump. Standard engines utilizing the principles of internal combustion are not usually able to process alcohol in its pure form. This requires some mechanical and electronic adjustments in today's modern automobile.
Ingredients used in fuel additives can be highly combustible and the attempt at creating your own fuel additives should be approached with extreme care. Homemade fuel additives are not impossible to make but with all the available products on the market, why risk it? Do not risk your life just to have bragging rights to your own fuel saving concoction. Your friends and family will not be impressed if you blow an arm off or burn 90% of your body from an accident of mixing the wrong chemicals at the wrong time.
Homemade fuel additives are very possible but should only be risked by those with the knowledge and equipment for proper handling of such things. If you are one of those people then have at it and create a new fuel additive that will save the world! If you are not one of those people, take yourself down to the local Auto Parts House and pick up their recommended product. You will be safer and you might save a little money on your fuel costs.
