I ve read about this for 20 years and I have tried it with zero results... A little shouldn t hurt anything because it s so diluted. I didn t harm my truck I tried it on.

how many miles did you have on your truck,im assuming the acetone eats up the gunk inside or cleans the injectors

...acetone "dissolves" lots of things (don't ask me *how* I know this); it's the primary component in paint-thinner and fingernail polish-remover.

...and, *if* you follow Snopes' comments on Urban Legends:
