Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0005499A1] The invention concerns a method and a device for treating fuel for an internal combustion engine. The fuel for the engine is sucked up from a confined volume subjected to a magnetic field or comprising a device for treatment by magnetic field (7). Said confined volume can form part of the tank or be included in a chamber immersed in the tank or external thereto. The chamber (1) or confinement volume (10) is provided with an intake of a return line (8) of part of the sucked up fuel (20).
