Complete vaporization of fuel is far from perfect in today's cars and trucks. A certain amount of residual fuel in most engines remains liquid in the hot chamber. In order to be fully combusted, the fuel must be fully vaporized. Surface tension presents an obstacle to vaporization.
For instance the energy barrier from surface tension can sometimes force water to reach 300 degrees Fahrenheit before it vaporizes. Similarly with gasoline. Acetone drastically reduces the surface tension. Most fuel molecules are sluggish with respect to their natural frequency. Acetone has an inherent molecular vibration that "stirs up" the fuel molecules, to break the surface tension.
This results in a more complete vaporization with other factors remaining the same. More complete vaporization means less wasted fuel, hence the increased gas mileage from the increased thermal efficiency.

Exactly where do I purchase this stuff? Like a typical grocery store? Also does any one know about how it effects the hp, this would be well safe for a motorcycle engine right?

I would be very careful doing this to your car or motorcycle. If you have a car that takes a higher octane of gas ( especially a motorcycle) then I would be afraid of what issues this could cause for you.
You should research the effects it would cause on your total octane and also the effects it would have on your cars ECU. if you have a newer car everything runs through your cars computer and it computes based off assumptions of gas and such but acetone could throw of your readings i would think.
detonation could be bad!
