I have worked with magnetic fields for racing slot cars and as a lab tech for a research scientist. Magnetic field strength decreases by the inverse square law. Molecules are aligned in a magnetic field and then return to other positions outside the field. One would expect any magnetic particles to collect at the magnet site. Fuel molecules are are collections of short and long chain hydrocarbons so polarizing them should have little affect on how the oxygen reacts. We are testing to find if a cause/effect mechanism exists. What are the differences in the fuel before it is in the field versus after it. Is anything removed by the magnets? Is the chemistry of the fuel altered permanently? Do the magnets affect the performance of vehicle is some other way by altering electical signals? This the difference between experiment design and guess work.

I have tested a couple of different magnet devices on my 1994 Ford Aspire and did test runs with them keeping control over as many variables as I could and time after time I saw absolutely nothing for results.

Because magnets, and many other things in the Unicorn Corral, are like dis/proving the existence of God (or any other Deity) - just because you looked and didn't see doesn't it's not there. The effect of magnets on FE is not something that can be easily measured, it goes much deeper. Metaphysical. Mystical. Transcendental.

Whatever the music, it's definitely being played from a magnetic tape, not a CD.

I've heard that some types of music can be improved by holding a strong magnet close to the tape.

Grant-53, I am the owner of this thread. I am interested in how you are testing the magnets effects.
I have stated that I don't advocate that magnets change gas, I say that I installed magnets and my milage increased substantially. I would be interested in experimenting with you with the magnets and testing the effects on the vehicle. I'm only 50 miles away, so It may be feasible to coordinate some kind of collaboration.

A magnet enhanced car should not need gasoline at all. A simple plug in to recharge the electric cars battery pack is all that is needed. Electric motors, the real magnet mpg saver.

Starting from a conclusion and working backwards towards a theory is slightly problematic. Perhaps you can review your test results and rule out your independent variables before jumping to such conclusions.
