the place where i work also sells and repairs computers so recently i got a couple of broken harddisks and took out the magnets... they're surprisingly strong for their size. i think i'll arrange them around my fuel line one of these days! i admit i have little confidence they will actually work... it all sound to good to be true... on the other hand my car still has a carb... no chips sensors and injectors... by wich i mean to say is that some old tricks might not work anymore on newer cars because they have systems that do the job even better.
i agree that it's very unlikely that any molecule or whatever orientation the magnet may very well cause in the fuel will remain outside it's field of influence... and even if it does how this could improve FE greatly,but reading ELF's comment i wonder if the magnet may actually filter something out of the fuel? (which would start to accumulate near the magnet in the fuel line clogging it over time....perhaps smaller diameter fuel lines are the solution )
No , not hibernating , just tired of the same stoopid sh.....stuff going round and round.
For example -

Nothing here goes forward because the busted theories don't get discarded .
And every time things like this are brought up again it lends credence to the idea., which makes this more of a place for fairy stories than anything else.,, and I just haven't got the time for that.
For me the best use of magnets is to put one in the pan on my auto tranny, also one on my oil filter. this keeps all the magnetic metal particles stuck in one place, instead of floating around where they can do damage.

I agree with this guy ^. The rest of it sounds crazy....but those magnets to grab truck idea....hmmmm....I like that!
lol th eonly way i see magnets doing anythign to the gas is well clogging it by collecting all the tiny metal fragments from the fuel tank/lines and causing a clog that when it gets big enough, break off and clogging the fuel filter or if you put them after the filter clogged injectors.... lol like someone else said theres nothing a magnet can do to fuel to "breakdown the fuel molecules" like i heard off some infomercial about them...
