Fletch: Had a Yanmar class a month or so ago and we had an Algae-X in the class and got to take it apart. It is a waffer magnet
inside the plastic shell. Fuel passes over it
and the magnetic field changes the physical characteristics of the microscopic organism found in the fuel. Yanmar reps swear buy. I plan on getting one myself but it is an expensive magnet. Thought about trying to make something like it using the same principal but haven''t got around to it.
All I can say is that I have heard good thing about it. Good Luck

In light of the latest SailNet diesel maint. article has anyone tried or had any experience with the Algae-X product? I didn''t find it offered for sale on the Sailnet site but I did find it offered thru a # of Distributors. Looks like it would work for me. Just curious before I shell out $200.
