Abstract: Magnetic field generated by a permanent neodymium magnet of 4,000 gauss intensity was used for this research and was applied on the fuel line of a 3 cylinder,4-stroke SI engine to reduce the fuel consumption and even the pollutants of the exhaust gas. This research comprises of various trials conducted on the engine at 3,000 rpm and different loads (100%, 80%, 60%, 40%, 20% and no load). Firstly, the engine was run without the installation of the magnetizer and all the performance parameters and the exhaust gas readings were noted down, and then the same procedure was adopted after installing the magnetizer just before the carburetor. The trials had positive results with maximum of 7.5% decrease in specific fuel consumption and about 4% increase in both mechanical efficiency and brake thermal efficiency. It was also found that there was a significant decrease in exhaust gas emissions with maximum amount of decrease in Carbon monoxide and Hydrocarbons was about 3% and 6% respectively, while there was an increase in Carbon dioxide by about 2%. The results above states that this technique helps in improving the performance and thereby saving the fuel and enhancing the green technology.
