The evaluation of the POWERFuel Extender System was conducted upon the application of the manufacturer. The device is claimed to improve fuel economy and driveability and to reduce exhaust emissions and required engine maintenance. The device is classified by EPA as a vapor-air bleed device. EPA fully considered all of the information submitted by the applicant. The evaluation of the POWERFuel Extender System was based on that information and on EPA's experience with other similar devices. Although, in theory, the introduction of alcohol and water could have a favorable effect on an engine's cleaniness, power and maintenance requirements and could even allow some vehicles to use lower octane fuel, data were not submitted to substantiate that the POWERFuel Extender System could cause these benefits.
