Looks pretty bogus to me boyo

Sounds like someone saw how people lapped up those 'magic' copper bracelets and made one for cars. Homeopaths have missed a trick...

Apparently if you add echinacea and ginseng to your washer fluid it decreases the chance of your car getting arthritis.

Pretty sure that's not how magnets work either... If you had bits in your fuel which weren't ferrous/magnetic in any way, this wouldn't do anything to them... and any magnetic bits (which is probably bad news if you have them in there anyway..) would surely just stick to one side of the fuel line near the magnet, to whichever pole they were attracted and slow the rest of the fuel down.

I guess the blockage would save you fuel!

How is a magnet going to affect fuel?
It isn't. But these things may attract the gullible to part with some money!

Fuel economy is subject to so many variables that it's very difficult for a
consumer to prove that devices like this do or don't work, so the vendors
can get away with selling them...
