Sta-Power fuel additive is being marketed as an emission reduction compound when mixed in the specified proportions with gasoline. It was desired to determine whether there was an immediate effect on emissions. An immediate effect would indicate that Sta-Power effects the chemical properties of the fuel or the reactions in the combustion process. A 1970 Plymouth Valiant with a 225 CID six cylinder engine was used for the emission testing. Baseline, and additive tests were run using the 1968 Federal Emission Test Procedures. Continuous emission measuring was used, values being calculated according to the 1968 Federal Emission Test Procedure. The test data indicate that Sta-Power has no immediate chemical or combustion effect which results in an emission reduction. No evaluation of long term detergent effect was made.
