Re: race mode/fuel magnet
even if the magnets worked as advertised, and arranged the molecules for better flow, how would this improve mileage or power output?
The engine requires a stochiometric mixture of oxygen and fiuel (14.7kg oxygen for every kg of fuel). Does the magnet change the weight of the fuel, so there's more grams per litre? If it magically could do that, then it would improve mileage.
Or maybe it improves the speed at which the fuel/air mixture burns, (not sure about this "mod", but has been claimed by several others) and thus gives a cleaner burn and more power? There's a device in modern engines though, to detect if a burn goes faster than normal though, and it's called a knock sensor. If your engine doesn't have, and you'd use such a device you'd quickly knock a hole in your pistons. Just disconnect the knock sensor and run on low octane fuel, it's the same and cheaper, with the same results... or maybe it does **** all for the customer, but I'm sure it works great for the bank account of the seller/manufacturer
