Default Perpetual Energy:

I didn't wade through the whole thing, but did stop long enough on the hydrogen generator that produces 3 litres per minute of the gas....supposedly the gas generated is introduced into the intake and voila! better fuel mileage, or so it would and should seem.
The only problem is that it takes more energy from the engine to produce the hydrogen than the hydrogen returns to the engine....it's that old perpetual motion thing that the immutable laws of entropy make impossible.

Looks like a good and pretty informative link but at the base is that acetone and octane are to are simple chemicals that ensure high output from your fuel, there are number of riders especially the racing guys who tend to make there own fuel by mixing these as per their specific requirements and now a days many fuel providers have launched there own brands which have pre added acetone or o ctane.

Anyone ever try butanol as a fuel? It's expensive, but I've been looking for a source to at least try it. It should do a great job cleaning the fuel system and combustion chambers.
