What Is a Diesel Fuel Valencer?

I can't seem to recall the trade name for it.

Google didn't help all I get is Algae-X and that ain't it.

This is an inline gizmo t"that redices soot and enhances combustion by breaking down contaminants to 2 microns or less"

Oh, sorry, I could have sent a link. When I Googled 'diesel fuel valencer' I got enough info to make me think it has the same effect as taping magnets to your fuel line. The effect being personal enrichment thru fraud. But I may be wrong....

Is this product anything more than snake oil? e bay is normally full of these things.

I think the US programme mythbusters did a test on these sorts of products and found that they were just myths

Here is a good one:

New Paradigm Plug. Optimizer + Fuel Saver on eBay (end time 22-Mar-10 07:29:14 GMT)


In other words, The 'Paradigm Plug' cuts, then pulls the magnetic waves longer to the radius of the vehicle in effect making the vehicle lighter in travel. The 'Paradigm Plug' is using the natural magnetic energy of the 'power source', to increase the length of the wave's radius to the perimeter of the vehicle which in turn can temporarily cut the earth's magnetic force, reducing force from the pull of the north pole field and the pushing of the south pole field, then, by adding the vehicle's momentum in travel the vehicle in effect becomes lighter, uses less power and literally saves energy in many different areas which all results in saving fuel consumption.

... Due to the CCS-FVM design and application of fundamental physical principles, an engineered Gauss field is directed at the diesel fuel contaminates as they flow through the Valencer. This results in the "cold fission" of particulate size that passes through the existing fuel filters and proceeds to complete combustion in the cylinders of the diesel engine.

* A Valence is typically, the number of electrons needed to fill the outermost shell of an atom. Because exceptions exist, the more general definition of valence is the number of electrons with which a given atom generally bonds or number of bonds an atom forms.

* Fission is a splitting of something into two parts.

* A Gauss is the unit of measurement (magnetic flux density) for a Magnetic field.

Gord,--YOU MADE MY DAY !!

I, like many, consider your advice, the marine version of "the sermon on the Mount"

And then you quote Billy Joel. LMAO :

Window valance, used above a window to conceal hardware of other window treatments

Yup, Hiding something like the truth.

What Gord here is trying to say here is that any claims that magnets clean Diesel fuel are complete, utter Bullshit. There, I said it

(Unless your fuel is full of iron fillings)

Gord, your mastery of the language certainly makes your posts most entertaining.
