This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the 'Basko MW Enginecoat' device under provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. 'Basko MW Enginecoat' is two paint-like products, one designed to insulate engine components, the second designed to cool other engine components. Application of these two coatings to the engine is claimed to improve fuel economy and performance while reducing emissions. Analysis of the information submitted by the Applicant did not prove that the use of 'Basko MW Enginecoat' would enable a vehicle operator to improve a vehicle's fuel economy or emissions.
