I read something about using electromagnets somewhere and there was some arguement against it. I can't remember if it was heat or power drain or something of that sort, I just dunno, I'll look for it after I get back from the doctor's.
I believe rare earth magnets are stronger than any electromagnet you could create within reason (ie. not drawing tons of amps). Consider their effect "free" since they are not costing your engine anything to run them.
I do have some old hard drives sitting around. Might have to go crack one open later.

Could there possibly be something in certain types of gasoline that causes the magnets to do something? Like if there is alittle water in the gas there could also be iron along with that water? Or how about some of the gas additives that they put into the gas near winter? Maybe there is something in there that might be reacting with the magnets causing some people to get better gas mileage. Have there been any test involving straight pump gas to magnets or have they been using pure quality gas?
I dunno. Those are good questions. Lots of states still use detergents, although all of them will be using ethanol (e10) pretty soon as the mbce or whatev it is gets outlawed. The reasoning behind magnets I have heard is it break up clumps of gas, but gas wouldn't clump, so mehbe things inside of it are clumping it up.
Got two damn powerful HDD magnets right now. I'll prolly dremel them down to just the magnet. I actuall smashed my finger when the went at each other, and it was really bad, these suckers are good stuff. I'll see if I can get some more, of course, but first I'll figure out if two is good for just the fuel line or what. I'll also post up a magnet thing in the experiment section with some pictures of how I put it together when I do.
Think we should call the news station and try to get copies of them dyno papers?
p.s.~The "belief" that you will get increased mileage is the only "force" working at its best...
