They work a treat. How could magnets that you clamp over the fuel line not massively increase your economy and power whilst reducing your emissions. It's obvious when you think about it, the magnets attract metal which makes the petrol swirl about a bit (although it isn't made of metal as such) and it has the desired effect (or something).

couple it with one of these:

and one of these:

and you'll be chasing Enzos up the local bypass in no time.

Go for it ... but you'll get best results after you solder a resistor between your MAF and your ECU :lol:

I think the general feeling is, and I could be wrong here :rolleyes:, that they are not going to help with fuel economy or performance. Keep your money and buy more petrol :thumbs:

Wedge a brick under the accelerator.

Not only will it help save fuel it also works as traction control ;)

think they launched these when fuel was at its highest price and people jumped on them thinking they would work which they didnt. The only person who wins is the guy who sells them.

I bought loads of these fuel saving things and clamped them all over the car and fuel system. The car broke down becasue the petrol tank kept overflowing.

Trouble is your performance has dropped dramatically, because your car is now so heavy because you've picked up every nail and random bit of metal on the roads :lol:

Performance is still way up there ................. Only the other day I tagged in behind a Ferrari doing 160mph up the Motorway going to Birmingham ................. Only problem was I ended up in Manchester .............. But I kept on his rear end all the way to the buggers house.
