not worth it...

I guess it could theoretically align the molecules up for that instant but **** what happens after it passes the magnet? guess what batman, entropy rules and those molecules will realign themselves in their own chaotic manner...

in short, not worth your money

Exactly, it might "align itself" at that point, but as soon as everything passes another bend in the system, it all goes wacky again.

Same thing as that cheesy Tornado intake add-on. What happens as soon as the air passes it and hits a bend in the piping? It sure isn't going to stay like a "tornado" any more.

Hmm, maybe if you bought an entire row of them and put them along the whole fuel line!!!!

Better yet, give my $95.00 and get the same performance gains!

I can't speak to it's effectiveness, but if you are curious about the tech, and want to give it a try, go to http://www.heartlandamerica.co...ELS+ and get one for about $20, with free shipping even! They appear to be the exact same item with different packaging. Just thought I'd throw that in! Let us know how it works if you do decide to get one.

Later,

Mike P.
