If the engineers figure out how to put neurotransmitter receptors in the ECM electronic circuitry, a healthy shot of cocaine would increase processing speeds far beyond what is now currently available. You might be onto something here.

I look forward to your DIY guide, with extensive ABA testing.

Cocaine, for science!

Well I'm back from trip and have posted pictures of milages on photobucket,WITHOUT magnets. The driving was done in warm temps 90 % all level to slightly hilly roads. 5000 miles of data to give mpg without magnets. I have installed the magnets and will post any mpg at highway miles to compare. The mpg seems to have topped out at 30 mpg.
I will try and compare new mpg with old mpg and rpm readings to try and determine any differences.

this is easy to test folks. all you need is an mpguino and an electro magnet.

instead of putting a magnet on the fuel line put an ELECTROMAGNET on the fuel line.

then while monitoring the real time output from the mpguino turn the magnet on and off and see what happens. conclusive and irrefutable.

I hightly doubt it will do anything.

hondo. you got 35mpg not because you installed a magnet but because you WENT ON VACATION this means lots of constant ZERO start and stop steady state highway driving. ALL cars get boost in fuel economy when you do this. that is normal.

We said this and suggested testing methods a few pages (and months) ago but that wasn't taken up by Hondo.

What we have now is some data of Hondo on leave with magets and Hondo on leave without. We have no idea if the driving, car load, temps, weather, tyre wear / pressure, or indeed the fuel type / source was the same. So we have no idea if even "Hondo With" compares to "Hondo Without"

As we also said a few pages ago without ABA this is pointless.

Good try, but lets do something more scientific.

Make your electromagnet work on it's own independent circuit with it's own battery so we can't say alternator load was affected.

solar powered electromagnet? obviously it would only work during the day or if it's charging a battery...

...we're not THAT close to the sun that any solar array on a car could produce ENOUGH current to power an electromagnet having sufficient motive force.
