Fuel line magnets have been around for decades, and tend to be one of the longest-lasting scams out there. No advantage has ever been proven to having a magnet on your fuel line but many have tried.

Gone to the dark side

There is nothing magnetic in the fuel that they can affect. If you have so much metal debris in the fuel that the fuel turns black and it can be pulled out by a magnet then you have some MAJOR problems.

Fuel line magnets are still one of the biggest scams in the automotive world.
