2011 Jeep Wrangler 2 door

Hi gang,

I need help locating the fuel supply line near the fuel injector. You may be asking yourself what the heck is this guy doing; but, I have a little experiment to perform. You see, I bought this magnet device off of ebay really cheap and wanted to see if it works at all. I know, I know what you are all saying...

So, can anyone please direct me to where the fuel supply line is next to the fuel injectors? A diagram or picture from online would help a lot if anyone knows any resources.

Best regards,

Chris

I guess that is a no :)

Tom, have you tried this device? I am just more curious as to if it would work. In theory, it sounds like it could work...

It really really really really really does not work.

This is probably the third or fourth time I've seen this pop up on a car forum over the years.

Silly rabbit, tricks are for kids. Don't believe the gimmicks you see on TV/online. They're just that, gimmicks. They don't work. Don't let the placebo effect get you either.

Thanks for the advice

Bummer. Well, I am trying to achieve the best gas mileage on my Jeep and was wondering if anyone could make any recommendations? Perhaps a K/N filter? Does a new air intake help and if so, do they void the warranty? Thanks for any advice!

Superchips Flashpaq tuner will get you a couple MPG's but at $330 it will take a little while to get your money back at that price. But if you ever plan on getting bigger tires or regearing, you will need it for that anyways.

A new air intake might get you a 1 mpg increase but it also allows more dirt and water into your intake so over time it causes more harm then good for mpg. An Intake and new exhaust together may get you a 2 MPG increase if done together and thats just a maybe. Different people have gave different results from that. I think the ones getting the best also got better ignition wires/plugs, CAI, catback, and a tuner chip together but after you figure in the cost of all that it will take several years to see a return on investment.

If you get bigger tires, regearing can help get fuel mileage back a little but not much but regearing and a tuner chip for bigger tires is the best combo. But if you notice that most of the examples the tuner, Superchip Flashpaq, is the common denominator.

Drive slower, dont accelerate hard, and coast longer. try not to use your brakes as much, let up on the accelerator and coast to a light, so it might turn green before you get there...

Buy another vehicle. Wranglers were not designed to achieve great fuel mileage.

If these cheap gimmicks really worked, Jeep would fit them from the factory to improve the mpg. You would get better mpg than these gimmicks by taking a crap before you drive your Jeep.

The thing about this style Jeep is they are moving bricks. So to be able to get better mileage as to sell this model to the masses and not just off road people, they already did so much to squeeze out everything they could while trying to keep it looking like a Jeep. They used light weight material even down to the tires and plastic grill. Most change out exhaust at cat back but they really already used 3" pipe so to get better flow. There just isn't much more you can do to this model as to get much more other then to keep it pretty much stock and to keep everything out as to not add weight and to drive conservatively. You can send a lot but in the end you will get little in return another then it might sound better. The best thing is to not worry about it too much. Shoot, my mods so far could buy my gas for the next 5 years.

Found this article through Google, in which the author notes that he has be able to find "no test data that support the claims for improved engine performance made by vendors of magnetic fuel treatment devices" and that "it seems quite unlikely that any of the claimed benefits of magnetic fuel treatment are real."

I think everybody agrees that devices like this are B.S., but I noticed that no one answered his original question about the location of the fuel supply line. Maybe it will help him think he's getting better mileage

Thanks for your reply. I see that the mods can add up quickly

Thanks all for your comments. Obviously, I bought a 2011 and knew what the fuel consumption would be when buying it. I always try to get the most out of any vehicle I drive and know that the jeep has so many different variables; I just wanted to hear if anyone used any product to achieve better results for their mpg. You are all correct, if Jeep could of added something to get better mpg; then they would of done it. I got suckered into a $9.99 magnet snake oil salesman I just thought the premise sounded cool. I would still like to try it out. Still trying to find which line is the fuel line in.

So far the best I've heard from the forum for a combo of hp and mileage is air filter, throttle body, exhaust, re-gear. Other than that, there's been a lot of threads I've sat up nights reading through on this forum to get educated and they all end up in the same 18 to 21 mpg... I'm glad that gas mileage was the last checkbox on my list when I considered "why I really want a Jeep"... the other 67 reasons were far more attractive anyway - checkbox #1 "S&it-Eating Grin every time I drive" - CHECK... SOLD!
- Anyone know if something like the Ramco Performace FloMax 300 fuel filter would help with mileage or is that only to supply better quality fuel ?

I got a device that has really helped my mileage on my 1993. It's a little yellow ball I put on my antenna. I think it was free from the forest service. Anyway... If the little yellow ball is being pushed by the wind and smacking my window, I slow down until the ball is not being pushed so far back. Have gotten 5-6 mpg improvement since installation.
