The document announces the conclusions of the EPA evaluation of the POLARION-X device under the provisions of Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. The second evaluation of the POLARION-X device was conducted upon receiving an application for evaluation from the marketer of the device. The device is a fuel magnet. It is claimed to reduce emissions, to improve fuel economy and performance, to provide more complete combustion, to eliminate engine carbon buildup and dieseling, and to reduce the octane requirements of the engine. EPA fully considered all of the previous correspondence and analyses that were incorporated in the prior evaluation. In addition, the intervening correspondence about the device and test fuel are also considered to apply to the application. The net result is that, except for the test data, the previous submission and the analyses of it are essentially unchanged. Based on engineering judgement, and the results of test data it is concluded that the POLARION-X device will not improve emissions or fuel economy.
