An independent investigation of the MAGNETIZER® EPM system by Sheffield Hallam University in the UK has arrived. We have seen it, and here are our comments and the study.
These are good new 2017 tests demonstrating the MAGNETIZER® Engine Performance system for fuel saving always works and delivers as advertised.
Sometimes with a punch, a few of the results obtained by Dr. Abishek Asthana CEng, MIET, FHEA, Ph.D., MEng, MRes, and BEng were much higher than average.
In August, we received a request from our distributor to interpret a 50% (sic!)—fifty percent—fuel consumption reduction achieved in this study. We called it an anomaly. This happens with older vehicles with more than the usual amount of carbon varnish in their engine, which significantly lowers their performance. Once MAGNETIZER® cleaned up the engine, the effect yielded a bigger than-usual variance.
The consistency of MAGNETIZER® operation and its long-term positive effect have been proven by various other universities and independent lab testing. Looking at the compendium of several hundred tests done with MAGNETIZER® worldwide, you will notice that the savings range is normally higher than that obtained in the SHU study, cf. Ibid. page 32 – the certified diesel truck tests reaching 20% (more magnets used on a large engine), or Ibid. page 37 – the confirmed government tests on the F-150 gasoline-powered extended cab pickups have resulted in 14% fuel savings.
The positive results are normally measurable after 10-20 minutes of the installation. However, Mundimex recommends driving the full Stabilization period to achieve optimal results. At the time of the Stabilization Period, which includes the time required to saturate engine metal parts magnetically, the savings will fluctuate. This period includes cleaning the internal parts of carbon varnish that permit the engine to save fuel.
The real fuel saving depends on the driving habits (economy vs. power), condition of the vehicle, state of its measuring equipment, such as the O2 sensor, the proper installation and factory protocols to be observed, on which type of the road vehicle is driving on or kind of fuel it runs on, like diesel, gasoline or LPG, etc.
Also, Magnetizer is safe and non-hazardous to people, cars, and its electronic equipment (it is used, e.g., by Police cars in the US or Canada). As a non-invasive technology, it does not void manufacturers’ warranties falling under the Magnusson-Moss Act.
Many vehicles, especially older models, run on the road and cause pollution. In such conditions, MAGNETIZER® is one of the best options for efficiency and affordability.
Now, it’s up to the users to install the MAGNETIZER® or not. In our view, it is one of the best ways to enhance engine performance and boost mileage in today’s market.
*It is the time involved in dissolving the carbon/varnish build-up. Apart from this, it can also saturate all the steel parts of the engine. The fluctuation can occur because the carbon and varnish start eliminating that time. When the stabilization level is achieved, the engine starts running smoother and easier. This period lasts for about 30 days to 1600 miles. Over time, the performance starts increasing and results in higher efficiency. The presence of EPM allows the engines to show high performance by using lower octane gas, thus helping in greater savings.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF THE SHU MAGNETIZER® STUDY
“Mundimex, Inc. in the United States has been selling ceramic magnets with a trading name Magnetizer® for automobiles and claims that these can enhance the vehicles’ fuel efficiency and reduce pollution emissions from their engines.
Sustainable Flow Ltd., a start-up SME based in Rotherham, is the supplier of these magnets in the UK and EU, available as ‘Sustainable Flows Motor Systems.’
However, to gain credibility before marketing its products in the U.K., SFL needed to verify the performance of these devices independently. In the past, there have been several similar products in the market which have failed to deliver what they promised. SFL has thus approached Hallam Energy (HE) at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) to conduct an independent investigation into the performance of these magnetic devices in reducing fuel consumption in automotive engines.
The consistency in the evidence from road tests suggests that the magnets have positively impacted the fuel efficiency of the vehicle.”
