                                      SUMMARY




       The Magnetizer Group,    Inc., of P.O0. Box 1000, Gardenville, PA    18926,

applied for exemption from the prohibitions In Section 27156 of the

California Vehicle Code for their fuel—energizer device.       The device is

designed for   Iinstallation on 1987 and oider model—year gasoline and diese!—

powered vehicles.

       Previously, the Air Resources Board exempted two similar devices;

"Polarion—X" by AZ    Industries,   Inc. and "Petro—Mizer MKI" by P and M

Research and Development Laboratory, with the same basic operating

principles.    Based on the engineering evaluation of the device and exemption

of similar devices,   the staff believes that the fuel—energizer device doeé

not have any adverse effect on exhaust emissions.       The staff recommends thét

the fuel—energizer device be exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code

Section 27156 and that Executive Order D—174 be      issued.

                        CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE



1.        INTRODUCT ION

          The Magnetizer Group,   Inc., of P.0. Box 1000, Gardenville, PA    18926,

has applied for exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the

California Vehicle Code for their fuel—energizer device models FE—1 and FE—

HD.   The device     is designed for   installation on 1987 and older model—year

gasoline and diesel—powered vehicles.

          The applicant submitted two samples of the device, one of each mode!,

for our    inspection and evaluation.     The applicant aiso submitted drawings

and specifications of the device for our evaluation.




E1.         N     LON:

          Based on the engingering evaluation of the device andvprevious

exemption of similar devices with the same operating principles, the staff‘s

enginesering judgement is that the fuel—energizer device does not have any

adverse effect on exhaust emissions.




PH.       RECOMMENDAT IONS

          The staff recommends that the Magnetizer Group,     Inc. be granted an

exemption from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156 for

their Fuel—Energizer device and that Executive Order (E.0.) D—174 be issued.


 IV.         VI      D     RIPT ION

         The Fuel—Energizer           is a magnetic device which   is designed for

 installation on fuel         lines.     It consists of two models; FE—1 and FE—HD.         FE—

 1   is designed to fit around small          diameter fuel   [ines (less than 1/2") and

 is held in place by two locking t{es.               The device is a "U" shaped steel

'plate with a hole on each side and two cube magnets with dimensions of 1/2"

 X §/8" X 3/4" mounted therein.             The south pole of the magnets face towards

 the fue!    line and the north poles face the steel plate.             The device    is

 encased in a plastic coating            in order to hold the magnets      in place and

 prevent the stee! plate from corroding.               The FE—HD unit js designed for

 larger diameter fuel         lines (larger than 3/8").       The dimension of the magnets

 aré 1/2" X 5/8" x 2—3/8".             It uses a flat steel! plate to hold the fuel        [ine

 in place.        Appendlx A contains figures of both models of the device and

Appendix B shows the          Installation instructions.




v.       D1SCUSS ION

         The Magnetizer Group,           Inc. claims that when their device is       installed

on a vehicle‘s fuel          line,    It will alter the   ion polarities of the fue! which

will   improve vaporization, air/fue! mixture, combustion rate, engine

performance and fue! economy.             They submitted several testimonials

concerning the benefits of the device.               They also submitted comparative

steady—state emisslons test data to support their claim.

         The Air Resources Board (ARB) did not perform any emission or fue!

economy tests to substantiate the claims made by the manufacturer.                    No

adjustments such as timing, EGR, fuel metering or any other engine

adjustments are          included in the Installation      instructions.    1t   is the

staff‘s opinion that the technical principles underlying the stated


                                               ~2~


 function of the device are not capable of producing any effects on emissions

 and fue! economy.     The ARB exempted two similar devices;   "Polarion—X" by AZ

 Industr ies,   lnc. and "Petro—Mizer MKI" by P and M Research and Development

 Laboratory.    Based on the exemption of these two similar devices and an

 enginsering evaluation of the Fusel—Energizer device, the staff recommends

' that the Fuel—Energizer device be exempted from the prohibitions     in Vehicle

 Code Section 27156.

                              WHY A MAGNETIZER FUEL ENERGIZER?                                      w
   Today‘s fuels leave a natural carbon residue that clogs lines, jets, carburetors and‘injectors
   which teads to poor fuel economy, high heat post—ignition carbonbuild—up, and internal engine
   damage.
  Today‘s blend of various gasolinas cause pinging (fuel & power loss from poor octane} and
  vaporization (stalling) because the fuul‘s composition cannot keep up with the very hot running
  high—tech engines of today.
  Paraffin build—up in diesel & home fuel systems is a natural phenomenon which clogs lines, jets
  and causes hard cold—weuther starting, smoking, higher maintenance costs, and poor fuel
  economy.

                                the clogged injector gives an inef—

         THE MAGNETIZER FUEL ENERGIZER WILL SOLVE ALL THESE PROBLEMS!
  The MAGNETIZER ionically bonds oxygen to the hydrocarbon molecule for a moreefficient
  and explosive gas. Magnetizing the fue} also polarizes the mixture by replacing the chaotic,
  natural gas mixture with anevenly—charged, uniformiy—aligned gas, which results in a total burn
  for complete BTO output (no hot spolting), and bulter tuet efficiency. The magnetic fuel also
  attracts and removes previous carbon build—upin the jets, injectors, & engine for even higher
  efficiency.

THE STABILIZATION PERIOD IS THE AMOUNT OF USE (TIME)
  JQES TO DISSOLVE THE CARBONAVARNISH BUILD—UP AND FULLY SATURATE (MAGNETIZE) ALL THE STEEL PARTS BETWEEN THE FE
—      iE COMBUSTION CHAMBER. UPON INSTALLATION, THE ENGINE WILL RUN SMOOTHER AND START EASIER, ECONOMY MAY INITIAL—
LY    CTUATE AS THE CARBON & VARNISH PARTICLES BREAK OFFAND DISSOLVE IN THE SYSTEM. THESE DISSOLVING PARTICLES BAIEF—
LY CAUSE VERY MINOR JET—CLOGGING BUT CREATE NO PROBLEM AS THEY NATURALLY DISSOLVE DURING THE PERIOD. THE STEEL
PARTS ALSO BECOME FULLY SATURATED ALLOWING THE FUEL TO FLOW FULLY ENERGIZED. THE STABILIZATION PERIOD LASTS AP—
PROXIMATELY 1000 MILES. THE ECONOMY/POWER (PERFORMANCE) GRADUALLY INCREASES OVER THE 1000 MILE PERIOD RESULTING
IN TOTAL EFFICIENCY AT THE END OF THE STABILIZATION PERIOD. THE FE PROVIDES MOST ENGINES WITH "HIGH—TEST" DETERGENT

                                               COLD WEATHER GELLING
A COMMON PROBLEM IN COLD WEATHER IS GELLING (PARAFIN WAX BUILD—UP) IN DIESEL FUEL LINES._THIS PROBLEM CAN BE SOLVED
BY PLACING AN ADDITIONAL MAGNETIZER UNIT ON THE FUEL LINE BUTTED AGAINST EACH FUEL TANK. (MAY REQUIRE 2 UNITS)

THE FE—HD IS SUITABLE FOR LIQUID PROPANE, FUEL OIL, ETC.
FOR THESE USES, PLACEMENT MUST BE ON THE FUEL LINE JUST BEFORE THE BURNER INJECTOR GUN, AFTER THE FUEL FILTER
NOTE: THE FE—HD IS NOT SUITABLE FOR NATURAL GAS USE. NATURAL GAS HEATERS REQUIRE THE FE—NG SYSTEM
