The report describes the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) testing of the 'Fuelon Power' gasoline fuel additive as part of its evaluation under Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act (MVICSA). The evaluation was conducted at the request of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to verify the claims for substantial exhaust emission reductions and for large -- greater than 15 percent -- fuel economy benefits. The additive is claimed to substantially reduce exhaust emissions, improve fuel economy, raise the octane of gasoline, improve vehicle performance, reduce engine maintenance, and extend engine life. Only the emission and fuel economy claims for the additive were evaluated in this test program. The overall conclusion from these tests is that the Fuelon Power gasoline fuel additive did not significantly reduce vehicle emissions or improve fuel economy for either the FTP or HFET.
