The Super-Mag is a retrofit device marketed by Valor Enterprises, Inc. of West Milton, Ohio. It consists of a set of magnets and sheet metal plates that are installed around an automobile's fuel line near the carburetor in a box-like arrangement. Valor Enterprises makes no claim in the installation instructions nor in its packaging for increased fuel economy or reduced emissions. On the package label this statement appears, 'Transforms Molecular Properties of Liquid Fuel to Maxium Combustion Efficiency.' The conclusions from EPA device evaluations can be considered quantatively valid only for the specific test vehicles used; however, it is reasonable to extrapolate the results from the EPA Evaluation of other vehicles in a directional manner. That is, to suggest that similar results are likely to be achieved on other vehicles. Neither fuel economy or exhaust emissions were affected by the installation of the Super-Mag device on the cars used in this evaluation.
