Info about Ferrous and Braided Fuel Lines
Personally, from my
experience, I don't think that the magnets attracting or repelling have much overall effect on the way in which the fuel is
conditioned... this is more to do with getting the magnetic field to penetrate the fuel line so it gets to the fuel. This
obviously doesn't really matter on non-ferrous pipes but on ferrous pipes the field is forced through the pipe quicker if
the units are fitted so they repel each other as opposed to attracting each other. You can feel this effect for yourself if
you take a short piece of ferrous pipe and fit two units so that they are attracting each other to the outer part of the pipe
and then use a ferrous screw driver or paper clip and place it inside the pipe under where the magnets are on the outside of
the pipe and you will feel that there is a very week magnetic field inside the pipe. Now swap the units over on the outside
of the pipe so that they are repelling each other and put them back on the pipe in the same place and again feel the field
strength inside the pipe with something ferrous. Immediately you will feel that the field inside the pipe is much stronger as
the field is then forced through the ferrous pipe much quicker. Fitting either of these way the field strength inside the
pipe will get stronger over time as the pipe itself becomes magnetised - the time this takes is down to the carbon content of
the pipe and also temperature is another contributing factor. So fitting the units so that they repel each other on ferrous
pipes will definitely speed up the time it takes for the magnetic field to get through to the fuel inside the pipe and start
its work conditioning it and this give faster results.
Metal braided or pipes reinforced with metal braiding are best
to avoid as this tends to act as a shield and prevent the field of the units getting through to the fuel inside the pipes.
Fitting to braided pipes can still work but if it is at all possible it is best to avoid them, even if it means replacing a
length of pipe with no-braided pipe and then fit the units on the new piece of pipe.
You will see better savings on
petrol engines than on diesel... you will also see better savings on older vehicles as opposed to newer ones as older ones
aren't running as near to optimum efficiency as newer ones are so there is more room for improvement. Also long distance
driving will show better results than urban driving.
