Does putting magnets on the fuel line really improve gas mileage? Strictly scientifically, meaning I don't want to see product claims.

It's been said that Cows give better milk production when certain types of music is played in the milking barns. Maybe if a magnetic high quality speaker mounted in the engine compartment and connected to the music system, then just maybe the Engine would deliver more efficiency performance per gal. of fuel feed into that system, vehicles have attitudes also. dontuknow......HMmmmmm ?

Just a hint; magnets placed on a metal fuel line are at a disadvantage (no motion). Their invisible forces need to be in motion to create turbulence, maybe like wind-chimes or some type of cycle effects(humming).

Notice how an experienced guitar player shakes his electric guitar neck to put a finesse effect to his music drama when playing a sustained cord/tone using the Earths polar effects combined with the electronic magnetic pick-ups/metal strings stimuli motion.

It won't improve fuel economy, however, it will make the retailers/distributors/patent holders a lot of money.

It might work if you put them in your wallet with your credit cards. Less chance if they are stolen that anyone will use them.....(why do I have the feeling someone will try this?)

The evil conspiracy of oil companies don't want you to know that you can increase your gas mileage by 534.38472% with berillyum magnets. They hire people to go onto discussion boards to discourage people from using this simple and cheap technology. Everybody who says "no" to the question is part of the conspiracy!

Now, where did I put my aluminum foil hat--the extra-terrestrials are trying to transmogrify my brain again.

And we all remember Jim Stafford's biggest hit: "I don't like spiders and snakes and fuel line magnets."

Even way back then, he knew.

No, the best magnets can do is capture metal shavings if they hapen to be on your fuel line, but no mpg at all

If this really worked, I'd think all car mfrs would have installed magnets all over the place long ago.

giwan..agreed, once several dozen people have pointed out the fallacy of magnets having any effect at all on totally non-magnetic fuel.. you would think
it would go away...

we can hope-- and I for one will not post on this topic..

magnets on fuel lines -stupid idea- useless,
