My brother bought a ford festiva trio and it had an ebay magnetic fuel saver on the fuel line, we took it off and the car lost power and used almost twice the normal amount of fuel, does any one here use them or know of them?

nahh, what you relay need is a Peter Brock Energy Polarizer.

Don't forget to deflate your tyres to 22psi.

Nah, the tyres would have to be 11psi, 22psi, 44psi and 88psi to form a mystic progression and channel the cosmic energy correctly :twisted:

Sorry, this was too much fun to resist.

If there was metal in my fuel for it to align correctly I'd be very worried. Less useful than an electric supercharger, scientology and a screen door on a submarine combined.
