The report announces the conclusions of the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) testing of the Fuelon Power as part of its evaluation under Section 511 of the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act. This evaluation was conducted at the request of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Fuelon Power is an aftermarket gasoline fuel additive that is added to the vehicle tank by the operator when refueling the vehicle. The product consists of a proprietary blend of hydrocarbons products which are claimed to substantially reduce vehicle exhaust emissions and improve fuel economy. Two typical vehicles were tested at EPA's Motor Vehicle Emission Laboratory. The basic test sequence included 1,000 miles of mileage accumulation, duplicate Federal Test Procedures (FTP) and duplicate Highway Fuel Economy Tests (HFET). This test sequence was conducted both without and with the Fuelon Power additive. 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. The additive clearly did not reduce vehicle exhaust emissions nor produce the large--greater than 15 percent--fuel economy benefits claimed by the manufacturer.
