On the other hand:

All fluids have what is known as “surface tension”. This is observable when one is able to float a steel sewing needle on top of a glass of water. Surface tension is what keeps liquids in their liquid state, as opposed to simply evaporating away. The strength of the surface tension can be overcome thermally. The amount of thermal energy required to overcome the surface tension of a liquid can be quantified as the boiling point of the
liquid. If the surface tension can be reduced by a non-thermal means, then the thermal energy requirements to overcome the surface tension (boiling point) is reduced.
Magnets have been shown to reduce surface tension in liquids by reorganizing large groupings of charge clusters into smaller groupings within the liquid. Molecularly, the liquid remains unchanged; both in molecular arrangement, and electrical and ionic charge. Charge clusters are what make groups of molecules clump together.
Differences in magnetic and electrical biases cause opposites to attract, therefore clumping clusters of molecules together. For the liquid to evaporate, it must first overcome the magnetic pull that keeps the molecules together within the liquid state.
Magnets reorganize the arrangement of charged clusters thereby enabling an easier (lower energy input) release from the liquid medium to a vapor state. Typical gains in economy from the use of magnets on fuel lines range from 10% to 12% from improved fuel vaporization and oxidation. Much data supports reduced exhaust emissions also.
Read the scientific reports:

Note that they use STRONG fields. Somebody in another forum said that he got good result using electromagnets, not permanent magnets.

Pseudo-science? You'll be the judge.
