When I was replacing my fuel line I found something wrapped around the fuel line at the frame horn. It turned out to be two round magnets taped to the fuel line using some kind of medical adhesive tape.
Had to be a story there!

There was some theory a few years back that taping magnets to your fuel line would do something to the molecular structure of the gas and make it burn more efficiently and get better gas milage. Rolling Eyes

Dont shoot the messenger, I thought it was a bunch of crap too. Cool

That magnet thing was a good money maker for a few suppliers.

I thought about putting the magnets in a headband like Ralph Macchio in Karate Kid and see if they would align my electrons.

Tape them to the bottom of the fuel tank and they will keep rust out of your carb.

Cutting up a bug at Daryll's once, in the midst of turning it into a baja, i was shocked to find some "adult photo's" behind the tar paper in the engine bay... was rather interesting Laughing

NOTE: Daryll had just purchased this bug, so NO he wasn't the naughty monkey that stashed them there Laughing AHHHH the things you buy off strangers Rolling Eyes
