Protecting the Environment
Magno-flo has also been trialled and tested by Ford Motor Company, resulting in Ford’s entire Dagenham and Southampton LGV delivery fleet being fitted with the Magno-flo Truck Unit.
More recently, extensive engine oil analysis has been successfully completed by the British Coal Laboratories on behalf of, Terex UK Ltd. Those laboratory tests proved categorically, without any question of doubt, that use of the Magno-flo device produces amazing results.
No other fuel conditioning unit, or alleged fuel saving device, has ever been subjected to such rigorous testing or achieved the standard of credibility that the Magno-flo unit has attained. We also now have a patent pending.
We are often asked, 'If this device is so good, why doesn't everyone have one?' The question is always asked by those who haven't tried it or who claim it can't work. However, in 23 years, we have never had a device returned.
Current Corporate Users
Magno-flo is currently in use with the following organisations and with many hundreds of individual road users. Corporate customers are entitled to a free, no obligation, trial.
The following vehicles are typical examples of those to which we have attached our heavy-duty device, both domestically and internationally.
With every engine we expect to optimise fuel savings, for example, with Caterpillar engines we experienced a staggering 40% on the Cat 966, 36% on the Cat 345 and 32% on the Cat 980. Significant savings in fuel and reduction of emissions.
Belle 40C and 50D DumpTrucks, that were fitted with Mercedes diesel engines, showed 12% and 5% fuel savings respectively.
On 360-Degree Excavators our device generated an immediate and noticeable increase in torque which resulted in significantly enhanced operator productivity.
Our device can also be used with generators, whackers and any other similar device that employs fossil fuels, with the additional benefit of reduced noise pollution. In the case of the Volvo generator, the decibel noise-level dropped from 100dB to 89dB.
For the Terex oil sampling trials we fitted our devices to their 1,200HP Cummins Diesel engine, see the image below with the devices fitted. The trial lasted 1.5 years. Every 2.5 weeks the engine oil was sent to the National Coal Laboratories for analysis. See the image below that pertains to the chemical analysis of the oil.
We've also successfully fitted to very 'thirsty' marine diesel engines, obtaining a 10% fuel saving.
Our latest test rig is a Scania, 480hp vehicle with a Euro 6 diesel engine. We're currently monitoring consumption with on-board Telematics and are currently achieving a 6% reduction in fuel usage. We're experimenting with the positioning of our device to determine if we can further increase that saving.

History of Similar Devices
2nd World War
The effect of magnetism on fuel to improve its combustion is nothing new. It was first used during the Second World War by the Royal Air Force on Mustang, Spitfire and Hurricane aircraft and shown to produce greater range and better performance from poor quality fuel.
5th Gear Challenge
In our opinion, an act of sabotage
We Challenge 5th Gear to Conduct a Full and Fair Trial of Magno-flo!
In conjunction with the University of Hertfordshire, and in our opinion in a quest for cheap entertainment, 5th Gear conducted a 'trial' of several fuel saving devices. A rolling road was used to conduct the test and all the devices, including ours, were classified as useless.
Since the program aired, the University has openly admitted that they can no longer use a rolling road to analyse fuel trials. However, a rolling road is not, and never has been, a suitable device for conducting an analysis of fuel economy. In fact, no organisation, Government or private, would ever use a rolling road for such a purpose.
Revotechik, a prime automotive manufacturer, state the following with respect to rolling-roads:
'One of the biggest mistakes made is to take a figure given from a rolling road as gospel. There are so many varying factors between different rolling roads that can affect the output: calibration, temperature, operator, tyre pressures, etc. that vastly different figures can be seen from one rolling road to the next. Realistically a rolling road can be a great comparative tool to show differences additional components make, but in the guise of a rolling road ‘shoot-out’ for a one off reading they are a waste of time. A figure or power curve only shows what the car is doing on that dyno, on that day in those conditions.'
Magno-flo is looking at options to pursue the university for substantial damages, since a huge order was lost as a result of their conclusions. As an academic institution that, in our opinion, should have been aware of the above characteristics of a rolling road why would the University of Hertfordshire, on 5th Gear, make the claims they made, especially since they were based on generally known inaccurate evidence?
In our opinion, since the chair of the University at that time was a Vice President of Shell Petroleum Company, there may have been a vested interest in disputing the validity of any fuel-saving device.
Finally, it's interesting to note that one of the 5th Gear presenters had John Brown fit a Magno-flo device to his vehicle during the filming.
How Magno-Flo Works
The Science Behind It
By using the correct strength of magnets and fitting them in the correct position on your vehicle, you will see a gain in MPG, a torque increase and a smoother running engine.
The powerful magnets are altering the molecular structure of the fuel, by magnetising certain molecules.
These molecules, when magnetised, become attracted to each other and create a finer spray. This in turn gives a better detonation by burning more efficiently.
NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) causes a wide variety of health and environmental impacts because of various compounds and derivatives in the family of nitrogen oxides, including nitrogen dioxide, nitric acid, nitrous oxide and nitrates.
Ground-level Ozone (Smog) - is formed when NOx and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) react in the presence of heat and sunlight. Children, people with lung diseases such as asthma, and people who work or exercise outside, are susceptible to adverse effects such as damage to lung tissue and reduction in lung function.
Tests on vehicle emissions, with and without Magno-Flo produced the following results:
Test at FAST idle WITHOUT:
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) 1.80%
NOx (Oxides of Nitrogen) 320ppm
Test at FAST idle WITH:
CO2 (Carbon Dioxide) 1.70%
NOx (Oxides of Nitrogen) 200ppm
We have many testimonials from satisfied users of Magno-flo.
Listen to what some of our recent customers had to say:
Stephen Dally - Regional Manager (North)
I was first introduced to Magno-flo in April 2017 and took up the offer of a free trial of their ‘fuel saving’ device being fitted to my car (BMW 5 Series 2 litre Diesel). I was rather sceptical initially, but as soon as the device was fitted (which takes only a couple of minutes), I drove my car and noticed an increase in power.
I’ve had the device fitted since and my fuel consumption has noticeably improved. In April, my car was returning 38 miles per gallon (MPG) and this has increased to 44 MPG (August 2017).
On two occasions previously, I had issues with my car (albeit under warranty) with the ‘Exhaust Recirculation Valve’ (EGR valve) becoming defective, which effectively puts the engine into ‘limp mode’ – Since this device has been fitted, there have been no further problems.
I subsequently arranged for the Torrent Trackside fleet of vehicles (company cars/commercial vehicles/MEWPs within the Northern Region) to be fitted with these devices and had some emission tests carried out with some fantastic results (In one case the N0x [Oxides of Nitrogen] reading on a Glasgow-based transit van was reduced from 64 parts per million [ppm] to 0 ppm, as a result of the device being fitted).
We are now looking to fit these devices to our Southern Region’s vehicles.
James Hickling - Depot Manager
I was introduced to Magno-flo in July 2017 after emission tests had been carried out to some of our company owned fleet of Ford Transit vans. All of our Depot Managers had been gathered in Glasgow for a meeting and John Brown from MagnoFlo was invited along to explain his fuel saving device.
After explaining what the device could achieve, John offered to fit one of these to my Vauxhall Insignia car. Immediately after fitting the device I could tell there was an increase in mid range torque – the performance had noticeably improved.
On the journey North up to Glasgow, my Insignia had given an average MPG of 66. On the return trip however, with the device fitted, it returned an average MPG of 72 (See photo below) with an almost identical journey and time taken.
I have since had these units fitted to all my Rotherham-based Transit vans. John came to site and fitted these – a process which only takes a few minutes per vehicle.
Duncan Stewart - RBS
"I noted the fuel efficiency in my Audi A4 2.0TDi for the 150 mile trip to meet John at 41.3 mpg. On the return trip this went up to 48.1mpg in exactly the same conditions - and I felt the engine giving more power!"
"All our fleet vehicles are fitted with Magno-Flo as the drivers notice not just the increase in economy, but the vehicles appear to run quieter and smoother."
"At first I was sceptical that such a simplistic device could produce the efficiencies being discussed and ultimately financial savings for the company.
We tested 1 car, 3 Transit vans and 3 connect vans for a period of 3 months before we purchased. The savings produced on the fuel economy were between 10% and 12%. We then asked our insurers to investigate if this had an impact upon our premium or policy and they stated they had no issue with the fitting of these across our fleet of vans. We have now purchased 250 and are in the process of installing them across our fleet."
