I found this out the hard way by prematurely running out of fuel molecules in Kansas (the 1/2 way point of the continent).

After 2-3 years you will have to replace the magnets, as they will run out of magnetism.
If you are going with the magnet theory then you have to use the Salt Magnets that can only be found in Hutchinson, KS at the Underground Salt Mines then brought to the Cosmosphere and refreshed by the kids in the space program.

I tried this too. I rigged up some sprayers at the wheel wells, and sprayed WD40 on the tires as I drove. This is supposed to lubricate the rubber, thus reducing friction on the road, therefore increasing the fuel economy by 25%.

Well I can tell you.....it did improve my gas mileage (but only by 20%, not 25%).....problem was....when I wanted to stop, I had to turn off the sprayer at just the right, or I just slid right on by my highway exit.

AND....I had to fill the WD40 tank every 50 miles.

Well guys, looking at it from a cowboys point of veiw, simplify things. It is all in the gearing! The bull gear is standing there looking at the heffer gear and not doing what is needed. Simply put they are polar opposites so they have to be turned so the bull can chase the heffer gear therefore everything will be aligned allowing natural flow of ying and yang.

I thing you need to use a mirror connected flamulator phased with the muffled flux capacitor. If I remember you need to be phase a 0.527 radians or with the largest of Jupiter's moons.You will get the best results if you cross connect the #1 and #15 flamulator gyro diodes.

Good luck and remember that you do have to wear a double layer of aluminum hat shaped like a flamingo head.

Use this a mold and cover with 2 layers on aluminum foil.

Add some Urea to the fuel tank, the real stuff, not the bought stuff from service stations. your fuel mileage will increase, and will be directly porportional to the size of your bladder, and how much beer you have had to drink.

It is commonly known that dy urea can make you run faster and stuff from service stations can cause that. I think we are on to something here!!

Your Unobtainium level is too full and causing parasitic loss on the wobble shaft spin factor, to rectify this it has to proceed in the reverse direction of the third moon of Saturn in the fall of the year on mars. In other words blow your horn 17 times to lower the level. Be sure it is 17 times and not 18.....you wouldn't like the results of 18 without a helmet! And while we're on the subject of light bulbs, I have one for sale that has never been used. Anybody interested in said light bulb please feel free to make inquiries on such. Light bulb is in better than new condition!

Told the wife to get out and push.. that only worked for two miles.. but I figure we upped the mileage by 1 mpg. If she could have pushed faster we might have gotten into the next gear and made a much better improvement.
