The evaluation of the Fuel Economizer device was conducted upon receiving a request from an importer of the device. The Fuel Economizer device is claimed to improve fuel economy and exhaust emission levels, vehicle performance, and also the life of certain ignition components. The Fuel Economizer unit converts the high tension D.C. current given by the ignition coil into high frequency A.C. current. This A.C. current of 20,000 cycles per second gives multiple sparks at various points on the spark plug. Being independent of the ohmic resistance it fires the plugs even if they are fouled. This in effect gives cleaner exhaust and fuel economy improvement.
