Fuel magnets – Do they save fuel or it’s a total rip off
With the steady spike in fuel prices and a constant quest for cleaner emissions, some aftermarket companies have presented fuel magnets. These devices supposedly help your car’s fuel economy. They also claim to deliver smoother running and cleaner emissions. It sounds too good to be true and it is.
Many car magazines and websites had proven fuel line magnets are a hoax. The idea behind the fuel magnets is straightforward. These magnets help fuel molecules line up while running through the fuel lines. This lining up process is supposed to improve combustion and deliver more power. The result is better performance and lower air emissions.
However, none of this will happen since magnets don’t affect fuel molecules. Mounting this accessory on your engine will do nothing but leave you with less money in your pocket. So, the next time you see those ads for fuel magnets, remember it is a total rip off.
