Fuel Economy Increase and Tailpipe Emissions Decrease Proven by Independent Lab in Extensive Over-Th
Ethos Environmental, a San Diego based company, today announced the Company's research division, Ethos Scientific LLC, has received confirmation of positive Over-The-Road (OTR) test results verifying increases in fuel economy and reduction of tailpipe emissions. The test results were obtained from the combined use of EthosFR+, a liquid fuel catalyst, in the test vehicle's fuel and EthosFR Oil Treatment in the vehicle's engine oil.
The OTR test was performed by the California Environmental Engineering (CEE) Laboratory, Center for Environmental Research in Santa Ana, California during May of 2009. A protocol similar to that prescribed for the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), J1321, was used. CEE is Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recognized and California Air Resources Board (CARB) certified. The test was performed in cooperation with the research group of Rod's Trucking, located in Santa Fe Springs, CA.
The test data reveals a fuel economy improvement of up to 11.3% with a 'significant reduction in measurable opacity emissions.' The Executive Summary of the test with a complete description of the test vehicle and test conditions is posted online at www.EthosFR.com/testsummary
"Just as with the Proof of Concept lab tests, the OTR tests serve to further substantiate the benefits of using Ethos FR+ in combination with EthosFR Oil Treatment," said Corey P. Schlossmann, Ethos Environmental, Inc.'s CEO. "These results are consistent with the many positive user/anecdotal results the Company has received over the past several months since the release of EthosFR+. We're pleased to be able to release this confirming independent test from such a professionally respected source."
