The Algae-X device is a magnet that the fuel runs through (Algae-X calls it inductive energy), and the magnet is suppose to realign the molecules that the fuel is comprised of. Clusters of molecules begin to form when the fuel sits for a period of time in the tank, and these clusters will form the sludge that accumulates in the tank. Excess fuel that returns to the tank from the engine, is freshened up after passing through the Algae-X device, and this helps eliminates molecule clusters...this is what I've been told by Algae-X reps.
While I have not used the additives, I do use the Algae-X device. It has no moving parts, so it does not need to be cleaned. When I had my fuel tank wanded and the fuel polished a year ago, I was told that the tank was fairly clean, and the fuel was very good. I've heard opinions both ways on this product, but it seems to work...so I'm keeping it.
