The oil filter magnet MIGHT help keep ferrous particles out of your oil (check http://www.lube4life.com/oilfilters.htm for more info); the fuel line magnet has been tested before (by the EPA and Consumer Reports, I think) and was determined to be worthless for improved mpg.

Depends on what type of gas you're using. If it's regular old 87-89 octane, it won't help. If its the patent pending molecular aligned irradiated stuff with the ionizer additive, it will help align the larger molecules for better atomization in the cylinder.

Wow, there's some "interesting" reading at: http://www.magnatronic.com/product_info.php?cPath=25&products_id=32
First, they claim: "12% - 20% savings on fuel consumption (guaranteed)", which is of course total BS. Them there's some pseudo scientific babble on how it works, and then more claims, of which none of them are true:
"# Savings of Fuel
# Power enhancement that can be felt by the driver.
# Emissions drop by %60
# Much less fume in diesels
# Decarbonisation of the engine!
# Longer engine life."
And there are errors, more than I can count, everywhere. Some intentional, others are probably not.

No offense, but since you didn't do your research BEFORE the purchase, I'd just consider it a lesson learned.

With the internet, there is NO way you should have let this happen.

That's just a great post, made even better by your user name.

According to "AAA" research center. There has not been a product that has passed the threshold of being able to claim MPG improvement. If there was it would probably get a Federal grant among other support.
