Magnetics and Fuels
The report on the Petro-Mizer quotes Professor John C. Hilliard of the Automotive Laboratory at the University of Michigan discussing another magnetic fuel-saving device called the Moleculator. Professor Hilliard said, "Hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline have hardly any dipole (separation of positive and negative charges), and for this reason, the fuel molecules would not align appreciably in this type of device. If they were aligned, the fuel dipoles would certainly be randomized subsequently - if not in the fuel line, then in the process of vaporization prior to actual combustion. Furthermore, even if such an alignment device did what the Moleculator's manufacturer claims this one does, there would be absolutely no advantage to any aspect of mixture preparation or flame propagation relating to combustion efficiency or vehicle fuel economy."
Gas magnets: How well do they work? 11/22/05 |
This is an old tape eraser they used to use here at abc12. There are some powerful magnet in here. You would take a video tape that you wanted erased, put it on the device and turn it on. The magnets are powerful enough they can rearrange the molecules on the video tape. That's the concept behind magnets on fuel lines.

The package label says the magnets cause clusters of hydrocarbons in the gas to separate. The fuel will burn more completely and cleanly.

"This magnet certainly is not going to be strong enough to break apart any molecules. The magnets are really not powerful enough to do much of anything. Common sense says even if I were able to somehow align the molecules, there's still a lot of turbulence between the point where you put the magnets and the fuel actually gets inducted into the cylinder. Any alignment you would have would be gone by the time you get it in the cylinder. So these things generally do nothing for your system at all," said Professor Greg Davis, from Kettering University.
