This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the Kamei Spoilers under the provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. The evaluation of the Kamei Spoilers was conducted upon the application of the manufacturer. The Kamei Spoiler is a plastic spoiler (or air dam) that is about six inches high and extends the width of the vehicle. The spoiler is installed beneath the front bumper to reduce the flow of air under the front of the vehicle. The device is claimed to reduce the aerodynamic drag forces retarding a vehicle and thereby improve fuel economy. EPA fully considered all of the information submitted by the applicant. The evaluation of the Kamei Spoilers was based on that information and EPA's engineering judgement. The overall conclusion is that the Kamei Spoilers have the potential to improve the fuel economy of some motor vehicles.
