Go for it, this is like Mythbusters but without the strange and distracting facial hair.
I have been known to don facial hair in the winter for warmth, but not the overgrown bush Jamie wears!

And I do intend to make a fair expirement of it. I could say I have done quite a bit of preliminary control testing, so what I'm likely to do is get one tankful completed sans the magnets after i change the oil, to get a baseline for having fresh oil. Then the expirement shall commence
