I agree, I've seen them bust the myth about removing the tailgate on a truck...
Now on my 95 it doesn't help at all to remove it either.
But on my 86 it sure did...

So I'm not too excited about an entertainment show to help spread the word, even less so if it gets busted, then we're just idiots.

Yeah they used the cheap fuel magnet that you can buy from jcwhitney for 30-40 dollars I've used that one too and it does not work period.

I have also used a more expensive one called an Energy-Cel.

I hate this new web page... GAG.

It seems to have made a difference on my old bug. I need to test it on my other car still but I don't want to take it off of my bug and I don't want to buy another one.

Oh and if hydrocarbons are not affected by magnets then why is there research on how to make super magnets out of hydrocarbons?

go figure.

Water gas? 2(H2) +O2 = 2(H2O) or can an take H2+O2 and make H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) still not a gas

Okay so water looks like this HOH naturally now this guy is saying that they break water apart from HOH and then re-combine it to make HHO and that some how is a gas?

I have heard about hydrogen boosters working they take water and break it in to hydrogen and oxygen and then they way it improves MPG is that they recombine and turn to steam in the cylinder and create more mechanical energy rather than chemical/heat energy. It also helps the gasoline expand better when it burns. I need to build another one to do long term testing with.
