"I have experimented with neodymnium magnets on the fuel lines in my Volkswagen Golf (which I no longer own).

I attached the magnets to the fuel lines close to the fuel distributor. This
helped the car tremendously. It ran smoother, idled smoother, became peppy and ran slightly more efficiently.

When I would take the magnets off the car, it would run like #@$%! again. It was
a 1987 model.

I think the reason the magnets helped was because the injectors were worn out,
and this magnetic field the fuel passed through assisted the injectors with
atomization.

These magnets have not worked in any other car I've tried them on except for a
1987 Ford Tuarus with 175k miles.

It's an easy experiment and doesn't require any additives to anything. Just
clamp a couple of strong magnets to the fuel line and see what happens.

You can go ahead and call me stupid now, but as usual, I know the magnets made a
difference because I was there and witnessed it."

"When a fuel gas flows in the direction of a magnetic field of decreasing
strength, a combustion reaction is found to be activated. The relationship
between the direction of a fuel-gas flow and the steepest gradient of the
magnetic field was observed to determine how the reaction was promoted. This
magnetic effect has been explained by the movement of the reactants and reaction
products caused by gradient magnetic fields. The results suggest that a chemical
reaction involving a change in the magnetic susceptibilities of component
species can be controlled by application of a gradient magnetic field"

"The effects of magnetic fields on the combustion velocities of gasoline and
alcohol with platinum catalysis were studied. The place of combustion reaction
of gasoline on platinum catalyst was exposed to d.c. magnetic fields with field
intensities from 0.1 T to 1.0 T. The combustion velocity was influenced by the
magnetic fields. The combustion velocity of gasoline decreased in 5 % - 10 % at
0.2 T and 0.6 T, and increased in 5 % - 10 % at 0.3 T, 0.5 T and 1.0 T. To
explain the undulant phenomenon in the curve of combustion velocity v.s.
magnetic field, various types of alcohol were burned with platinum catalysis
under magnetic fields. The magnetic field effect on the combustion velocity of
alcohol was observed to show a minimum at a specific magnetic field; -5.3 % at
0.9 T for methanol, -2.3 % at 0.6 T for ethanol, -16.9 % at 0.6 T for
n-propanol, and -73.8 % at 0.7 T for n-butanol."

Oilwell tests show magnets reduce paraffin buildup

http://www.rmotc.doe.gov/Pdfs/95PT5.pdf

I found this when trying to find any scientific backing for the magnet fuel idea.

Magnets did not affect scale build up but did seem to reduce paraffin build up.

The GREAT SCIENTIST at....

http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/diy_magnet_use/

found about the same thing. Magnets affect hydrocarbons but not lime buildup in water lines.

I have read the the magnets affected hydrocarbons, but that once they passed through the magnetic field, they went back to normal. Maybe magnets on the fuel rail?

then ur gonan screw up your injectors(pretty much liek an actuator, uses a coil to generate a magnetic field and pull the pin/bar and lets fuel flow into the cylynder)

magnets dont do crap to fuel! some of you should have been paying atention in highschool chemestry....

Gasoline isn't magnetic.

While with really strong magnets liquids are repelled by a dia-magnetic force; once the liquid passes, any changes that would have occurred(a supposed aligning of the molecules) will be destroyed because of how fast molecules in a liquid move. Then, take EFI where the fuel pump is constantly recirculating fuel back into the tank and such and you have nothing.
