Fuel magnetizer is a magnetic device that can improve the combustion efficiency on vehicles or other combustion systems. Many studies have been studied about the effect of fuel magnetizer on fuel viscosity or combustion efficiency, fuel savings, and emissions reductions. This study aims to identify the main factors that can influence on the performance of fuel magnetizer and optimal fuel magnetizer parameters in gasoline generator set and LPG gas stove using Factorial Design method. This study used three factors with each factor consist of two levels. The result shows that the optimal parameters of fuel magnetizer in generator set are fuel magnetizer with Ferrite C8 magnet type, polarity repel each other with the liquid flows parallel to the lines of force in the magnetic field (mono-polar) with one magnet pair installed on the fuel pipe. It can increase 10.05% duration of fuel consumption. While optimal parameters of fuel magnetizer in LPG gas stove are used fuel Ferrite C8 magnet type, mono-polar polarity, and use two of magnet pairs installed on fuel pipe. It decrease 7.69% of water heating time.
