i got this strong kerosene smell comming from my exaust every time i stop for a light or stop sign or anything and theres also alot of smoke comming out the exaust that must be vapor because it disapears quickly and water drips out my tail pipe. i havent been losing any fluids and not burning any either.
i think it smells exactly like kerosene, my girlfriend says it smells like gas.
ive tried switching gas brands and octanes but nothing happens, my exaust tips are rusting to pieces from the vapor. the car doesnt have any drivabilty issues except for vibration at idle

well smells like raw gas and i can only smell it if i'm like right next to the exhaust.
me and 1 hot is trying to solve this problem.
one person told me my rings are worn.
but i doubt that because from what i've been reading g1 bottom end engines are pretty tough and understressed...so what color smoke you get...

I got the smell too and get whiteish/blueish smoke after idleing for a minute or so and if I rev to about 200 rpm outta 1st gear, the cluod will be quite thick....Im attributing the smoke to worn valve stems/seats, but I also think that the smell must be from the cat being affected by some sort of fuel problem...
Gentlemen we should leave this smartgas thingy alone and let the petrolium agency do all the research work for us, it makes you wonder though as to why this long term study/research is not widely accepted, those poeple gots hard facts to back it up!
If you use 20 gal a week, you're saving $1000/year on gas. That's $3K in 3 years. So, $100 for O2 sensors doesn't seem too out of line, IF that's even the case.
A cat would be $300. 10%
Take off 13% and you still saved $2600 in 3 years.
And, that's assuming the worst case. Which, if what I read is true, would not be so.
There's a strong case for it actually extending the life of all these components.

None taken KAHruzer just voicen out my opinion, I'm just glad that somebody shows some interest with this thing and NO I'm NOT an oil rep but I know an individual that works out here in SoCal for Atlantic Rich Corporation "ARCO" oil refinery in the City of Long Beach and when I saw your post I called this individual about acetone for engines.
I got mix feedback... as 5speed mentioned, very good MPG but with lots concequencies so I left it at that, I'm going to try and purge some more info out of this individual and when I do I'll post it for you guys...
