Well, you're saying that no matter what the effect on fuel is, the engine will burn less of it to travel a given distance. That's not too hard to test.

The best way to test them would be all in one day, make a few runs with the magnet on, then with the magnet off, then with the magnet on again. All you really have to do is find a road that you can go 55-65 on, put on cruise control, and measure the fuel consumption.

I live in Whitney Point (20 minutes north of Binghamton), I'd be more than willing to help you test it out if you need it. Or, if you'd like to loan me one for a day, I could test it out on my car.
