"Oilmax" units. Is this snake oil?

Quick reality check

This is snake oil isn't it? Or is there really such a thing as "fractured hydrocarbon chains" which can be reduced by "specific resonant frequencies"

Personally I think it sounds like so much rocking horse manure but with the price of oil I'll look at more ways to cut my oil consumption.

Yes, it's the old magnet round the fuel pipe trick

Turning down your thermostat by 5 deg and making sure your boiler is serviced will have an impact though. Very Happy

Sounds like a load of codswallop to me.

Thought so. So How do they get around advertising legislation?

Internet advertising is not covered by the advertising standards agency.

Hydrocarbons are "fractured" in refineries by one or more of high pressure, high temperature or expensive catalysts. If it was something that could be done in your garage using "the principle of resonance", oil companies wouldn't spend hundreds of millions of dollars on kit to do it.

Wikipedia's got a fairly comprehensive article if you want to read about what you'd actually need to install in your house to "fracture hydrocarbon chains in passing fuel".

Bah, if the oil companies cared, they'd install magnets on their pipelines and save us the job.

Another one fallen for the propaganda.

You don't think those refineries actually *do* anything do you? The actual refining process is acheived through the a two stage process involving first the addition of a quantity of lubricity optimised carbon. This is a planar form of the same chemical as diamond, but has been specially produced at massively lower temperatures and pressures. It is then liberally applied to certain checks which allows the excess dolah to be extracted. Although this sounds (and is) very complex, it doesnt actually need a lot of space. The final step is carried out by family of elderly afghan specialists who spin homoeopathic crystals anti-clockwise over the pipelines.

The actual refinery buildings are due to a plot by the world engineering cartels who have been ruthlessly misleading the oil men into spending millions on these supposed fractional distillation processes.
Instead these funds are what keeps engineers in bmws.

SSSSHHHHH!!! Cool
