This document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the Mesco Moisture Extraction System device under the provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. The evaluation of the Mesco Moisture Extraction System was conducted upon the application of the manufacturer. The device is an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system. The device supplements the EGR system of a vehicle by adding cooled and filtered exhaust gas to the carburetor. The ignition timing is also advanced. This combination of advanced timing and supplemental EGR is claimed to result in a longer cleaner burn that improves engine performance and reduces emissions.
