from what I remember you may initially see a boost in mileage. But it is from the acetone cleaning the buildup of goo from the fuel system. So add some once a month or so and let it clean the fuel system.

sounds kind of hokey to me, you would have to put the magnet right at the end of the fuel line as close to the carb or throttle body as possible for it to have any chance of working at all! Anyone tried this and had positive results?

The Magnets dont work that well un less its close to your Fuel rail.

Nwow there is a new thing out that i saw on Power Block and it alows you to get better gas milage. If you have to use a higher grade gas you can use a lower grade and get close to the same MPG.
I can get on the Summit site from work but I will post a link when i get home

Gasoline is not magnetic, how is a magnet going to do anything to it?

it increases fuel mileage until your system is cleaned out, then it levels out. (acetone). so if you want to clean it, go for it! it doesn't damage the seals in your system, especially in the concentrations used.

If you want to increase your gas mileage, by at least one or two MPG..........you already have all the tools you need.
Drive like a Blue Hair!!!!!
1. Do not accelerate fast
2. do not make hard stops (let the engine slow you down)
3. Keep your speed 10mph slower then what you usually drive
